I am about to purchase a .204 Ruger for fox as i have heard great things about the accuracy and effectiveness if the calibre. It came up in conversation that Scotland does not specify a min calibre for Roe and as such the .204 with a 50gr would be perfectly legal and humane.
'For roe deer, where the bullet must weigh at least 50 grains AND have a minimum muzzle velocity of 2,450 feet per second AND a minimum muzzle energy of 1,000 foot pounds may be used.'
I don't think there is a factory 50gr yet but home loading is possible. I do all my Roe stalking in Scotland and was interested if anyone uses the .204 on Roe and if it is effective, I obviously do not want to run the risk of injuring.
Any opinions on the .204 for Scottish Roe?
