I know that the gunsite has a small barrel so it won't be the most accurate but from
I agree the gun site scout may not be the best but a shorter barrel should have little to no effect on accuracy.
To the op. I have killed many coyotes with my 22 at close range. For anything past 100 I would recommend any rifle in 223 or 204. If you are selling pelts. If not it is fun to shoot them with a 25-06 with 85 grain ballistic tips they really make a mess.
