A .223 or a .22mag might be best for fox. For coyotes my choice is a 220 Swift.

No shotgun option?

I friend of mine has the 204 and loves it for coyotes but never has a chance to really stretch it out long distance in the forested north country...hence why I lug the 12 gauge.

I don't know how the 204 would handle foxes, especially at closer ranges. The 22 Mag would be good for both within limits.
