Thread: Dedicated night vision rifle

    Dedicated night vision rifle

    Hi looking to fill a variation slot I've available and was toying what cal to apply for , I already own 243 , 223 and 22 rim fire , the rifle will be used mainly on fox so thought I would put the feelers out regards your preferences and so ? Cheers Wally

    hi wallboy, i would think that your 223 would be all you would ever need for foxing, unless you are shooting deer or boar i think you are well equipped although plenty of lads my way are using 204 for fox,

    Any feedback on 204 ??

    Keep it simple, get another .223.

    Would be 222, 223 or 22/250 for me depending on what nice rifles were around at the time

    You've lost me with "variation slot". Surely you either have a slot with some thing in it, in which case cartridge is already decided, or you don't have a slot.
    Or do you mean you have a slot with a cartridge on that you don't want so you're gonna change it to something else?

    Either way, is there any reason why the 223 can't be a dedicated NV rig? You'd still have the .243 for day use.

    .223 would be my choice for the job.

    If you want something a bit more exotic I had a buddy for a while that swore by his .220 Swift
    Yes I should have taken the Blue Pill!

    We were so busy congratulating ourself of dodging Orwells vision we marched right into Huxley's.

    22.250, would be a good choice, quite close to 243 though, cheers

    Controversial option but trade the 17hmr for a bigger deer round and use the 223 for the night rig. You can then use the .243 for daytime fox.

    Or don't get a new rifle and just use the 223 as the night rig with the 243 for daytime fox and deer.
