Good to see someone consider some good guns rather than the typical Gamo/Chinese/Spanish made garbage.
A couple of things to consider.
You are wise to not be considering Coyotes with the springer as they really are not putting out enough energy for a clean kill.
The RWS 34 is a 13-15fpe gun depending on pellet used, while the 350 is a 17-21fpe gun. Both will work fine on the other game you mentioned at the range you indicated.
I personally find the 34 to be a bit more 'all purpose' if you will. The 350 is quite long and a bit hard for a novice to shoot accurately.... but with plenty of practice can certainly take small game out to the 50 yard mark and beyond.
You will want to reconsider your pellet choice, however. Typically, with springers, the heavier ammo is not the best choice. I say typically because there are exceptions, but I think you'll find mid weight pellets in the 14-16gr range to be far better. You may be able to get away with a bit heavier pellet out of the more robust 350, but even then, 21gr Kodiaks will choke velocity down to around the 600fps mark and trajectory will be quite loopy.
If you were talking about a powerful pneumatic gun or PCP, then I would say to use the heavy pellets, but in a springer, you dont want anything too light, nor too heavy because performance can suffer and you also run the risk of damaging the gun.
either of those guns will do. Advantage 34 for ease of use and handling, advantage 350 for power at range... but WILL require more practice to get the best out of it.
Hope this helps.
