It depends on how well you shoot.

If you want to shoot Coyotes with a 22 LR, I wouldn't use anything less than a CCI Stinger or CCI Velocitor. The Stinger is a bit wild at 1640 fps muzzle velocity with only 32 gr bullet, but it packs a punch and is still reasonably accurate The Velocitor is also a hot round at 1435 fps, but it comes with a larger 40 gr bullet. The Velocitor is a bit more accurate and carries a slightly bigger punch at 134 ft-lbs at 50 yards compared to 119 ft-lbs for the Stinger. The Velocitor is harder to find right now because it has become so popular that it's usually on back order. I don't think BPS carries the Velocitor, but they should.
One more thing to consider is that I've heard that some guns don't chamber the Stinger because it has an ever-so-slightly larger casing. Your standard Ruger 10/22 will handle it just fine, as an example. I wouldn't try it on older gun without calling the gun manufacturer's customer service first.
To answer your other question, one well-placed shot from either of these two rounds will drop a coyote in it's tracks.

Well, I suppose it depends where the rounds hit and how good a shot you are.
A head shot should do it.
In my opinion, a simple solution would be to obtain a reliable and accurate varmint rifle (i.e., .223, 22-250, 22 Hornet, etc) and resolve the situation once and for all. Trapping coyotes can be a difficult proposition especially if you are contending with a pack vs. a single animal. Coyotes will definitely hunt domestic pets. Avoid the loss of a valuable member of your family (your dog) with a single well-placed shot.

You might want to contact your local game warden. They can set up a trap to try to catch them. We have had them around here in Richmond, which blew my mind to see them in the city/suburbs! But I know they are trying to trap them.
All else fails... go buy some more ammo!! :-)
