Just get the M193 (I like Q3131A) and it will do you, your gun and your wallet fine.

2 to 3 years.....too funny I wish I could make a 1000 rounds last 2 to 3 weeks.....I get the XM193 for target and plinking, and for the ever elusive coyote I like using anything that has a Nosler Ballistic tip... Hornady 55 grain V-max or Federal P223F 55 gr Nosler ballistic tip, soft points are ok but the ballistic tip really does a good job of stopping them damn coyotes in their tracks and leaves a nice hole.

If you want to save some money and get a good hunting round go for the Silver Bear 62 grain Soft Point. Should be able to get 1000 rounds delivered to your door for $135

For your purposes it sounds like the cheap 40 and 50 round value packs that Wal-Mart sells would suit you just fine. A 55 gr SP would probably be a good choice. However, the ballistic tips might be a bit more effective and accurate. But you did say cheap, so get the SP's.

I like the 40 and 50 round value packs as well, but soft points aren't that cheap (around $17 for 50 round value packs around here, as opposed to $10/50 of the FMJ). YMMV.

If your going to use it for hunting use Soft Point ammo. Don't use xm193, unless you wan't to eat bullet fragments.

He did say coyotes.

M193 should do it.
