Surgeon action is the best action on the market. Wicked smooth action. I run a surgeon, krieger barrel, Jewell trigger with a kmw stock. I shoot more precision rifle with it but long range predator hunting with this rig is amazing in west Texas

+1 on surgeon kreiger and jewell...

but i would run a mcmillan Lazzeroni Sporter.

you may want to consider 6x45 or 6x47...

Here's my favorite setup:
6x47 lapua
Surgeon action
Kreiger barrel 1-7.5 twist
Jewel trigger
Manners stock
Nightforce 5.5-22x56 on top
I love it for shooting yotes! And deer!

While Surgeon actions are very nice and what I will be using on my next build, there are a host of actions out there that are equally as good and if a guy watches the forums may be able to pick up with a no wait time and possible discount. Stiller, defiance, bat, nesika, to name a few. Unless you are set one way I would watch and a guy can usually pick up most of his components in the forums. If I were building coyote specific I would keep the contour light in whatever barrel maker your comfortable with and rock s 22-243 improved shooting either 75 or 80 grain amax bullets. Ought to put the smack down on the coyotes at any distance a guy should be shooting dogs at.

It seems like Nesika has fallen a bit behind the leaders lately.
My current favorite is the Bat.

Brain fart Alert !
Why not a Savage Model: 10/110 Predator Hunter Max 1
in 6.5x284.
Clip magazine
good trigger
good action
accurate
6.5x284 = WOW on Coyote !
24 or 26 inch barrel if custom.
Might be a good starting point for a very nice project.
Just throwing some idea on the table.
good night .

Clip magazine

There is no such thing.

A magazine is a magazine and a clip is what is used to load the magazine.

Sorry its a 6x47 lapua.
Its not the lightest gun, too much barrel. I'm thinking about chopping 2-4" off. I've killed deer at 750 yards with it. I can't wait for a 1000 yard yote!

dhughes, that's a nice rifle!!
What's the contour on the Krieger barrel?
Is that Surgeon bottom metal too?
