For the most part I use a 7mm-08 with predator rounds, it's absolutely deadly and does zero damage to the fur , I shot a small bobcat and was amazed at the internal damage yet it only punched a tiny hole in and didn't exit !!

Handloads? What brand and weight?

i've heard tell of people using 6.5-300 weatherby magnums on preadators
You know your hunt went well when you had a shot that was unethical and you never took it, even if you never got your bull.

I originally would have voted for the versital 243, but now I am loving my 22-250. 1 shot drop on this dog at 425 yards. No exit hole with 45 gr HPís.

I usually use my 243, but have a 223 waiting to get broken in.

My rifle is Remington model 700 in .270 (insert your rifle here). I understand the original poster wants to save the hide but why not practice year round with the gun you are taking big game with? Coyote,deer,elk,bear have all taken dirt naps from a 130 grain Hornady out of my .270.
Work prepare and hunt hard. Everything else comes easy.

Ended up going with savage axis .243 Winchester it was more in my price range too and my daughter will be able to use if decides to hunt deer.  Now gotta find a fox pro that doesn't cost arm and leg  :tup:

I use a Youth model same gun- that might be what your daughter needs depending on her age or size? Not an expensive gun, but sure does the job.
