    In many's opinion, a .17 HMR is very good. The bullet would not travel very far after it came in contact with the coon. Almost any .22 caliber would work too, with much cheaper ammunition. Your choice.

      If you can get one, a Remington or Marlin Bolt Action in 22 Magnum would be more than effective. Has the extra punch at distance, and ammo costs more than the 22 Long rifle, but I have yet to shoot a racoon or squirrel once with the 22 mag. I would say to do one other thing, if you do get a good rifle, make sure it has a scope and iron sights. I set up mine with the scope at 100 yards, iron sights at 25 yards. When I've treed a coon, I use the iron sights, if he's on the ground and in range, I use the scope for those longer shots. One thing I do recommend, lots and lots of practice.
