I am building a new .223 upper and would like to be able to hit feral cats from 25 to 75 yards and coyotes from 100 to 200 yards.

So the hit zones are about 6” @ 25-75 yards and 10”(?) @ 100-200 yards.

Is this site up to it?

And is the reticule set up for distancing or leading assistance… something like a mil-dot. Or is it solely designed for quick acquisition of the target. thanks

Absolutely, a 10" target at 200yds is a piece of cake with the EOTech.

The reticle is made up of a 1MOA dot (equal to about 2" at 200yds) and a 65MOA diameter circle around it. Stealing this picture from the reticle thread:

Yes. But an ACOG may be more your thing. I have a TA01NSN and I have no problems at 25 yards with the 4x magnification. Cross hairs are going to be inherently more accurate than either a red dot or a BAC recticle.

You can use an Eotech out past 100 yards easy - the 1 MOA dot is great for distance shots.

with the 551 and lmt 14.5 I can hit TIN Can at 220 yards pretty easy! used my range bag for a rest

My EOTech is mounted on a standard A4 flattop. With a 200 yard zero, I have consistently hit water filled one-gallon milk jugs at 300 and 400 yards. At 300, I aim at the top of the jug, at 400 yards I have a sliver of light between the jug and the red dot. I'm using Wolf 62 grain FMJ.

Define Precision Shooter. Most iron sighted guns are capable of this if you are.

By design the reflex type sights (EOTech falls under this definition) are for fast Tgt acquisition and speed, sacrificing Tackdriving accuracy. Sounds like you are looking for a Varmint Rig. A scoped rifle with some sort of magnification would be better suited by shear nature of design. The EO Tech would work but may not be the best tool for that purpose.
Lots of factors like you and you skill being one, ammo being another.

Just my opinion.... YMMV

yes, but scope with some magnification may give you more enjoyment in shooting.

The EOTech is not a precision sight, but should function just great for what you need.

yeah, it's a precision sight..... at 25yrds

I turn down the level on my Eotec for longrange. I have used mine out to 200 yards with good results.
