I think the main reason for going with .223 is the AR platform... If i were getting a bolt gun it would likely be a 22-250.

If you are hunting just coyotes, get a .204. If you hand load I've got a great receipt, if you're gonna shoot factory loads, 32 gr Hornady or 34gr Winchesters.
I've had both .223 and 22-250 as coyote rigs, you can't go wrong with either. But the ULTIMATE coyote rig to up to 350 yards is a .204.

my 2 cents.

Check out the Savages,they got lots of lefty options,I just got a 10/110 predator hunter max 1 in .204 because I've wanted a .204 since they came out with it.Got a bonus at work and treated myself,the gun out the door was 850,I should be picking it up tommorrow.I checked a predator 10 model(solid camo) same action as the one I bought with a 2 inch shorter barrell,the stock is the cheesiest thing and actually it didn't seem that bad.

Being left handed my selection is limited, I am going with the Remington SPS 700 Varmiter seems to have pretty good reviews. Price is pretty good I am tring to stay around 1300 with a scope and bi-pod so it fits the bill.

Sorry to disagree with you, but the ultimate caliber is the .243 WSSM and the .20 Tac, both in AR platform  :) :) :) :) my 2 cents
