Thread: .308 lamping

    .308 lamping

    Anyone use .308 for lamping? Took mine out in the dark for the first time last night. Got a couple foxes but it was LOUD AS HELL!
    Land owners said they don't mind, and the neighbours haven't complained but I still think it's just too damned loud for the middle of the night.

    Anyone have any input on this at all?

    I wouldn't worry about it if the farmers and neighbours are not bothered unless your shooting rabbits that is

    have you got a mod on it? doubt most people would register the first shot. my mates 250 with out a mod is hideously loud,but no seems to notice

    Yeah, the farmers are very enthusiastic for pretty much all foxes to die on the land. Probably find the shock and awe quite comforting in the night.
    I'll probably keep my trips to once a week or fortnight just so as not to push my luck too much though, only fired 5 shots to other night. Quite reasonable I suppose?

    Have a mod on. Sounds twice as loud in the night though like most things.
    I suppose it's loudest cos I'm there. Probably not too bad at the owners house about 300 yards away.
    Thought about getting a .223, but really, even if it's not quite so loud as a .308 it's still loud as hell no?

    Yes, .223 won't be much quieter.

    I hope not. Can't really justify the cost of another gun.
    Anyone here had any trouble for the noise from guns when lamping?

    I use an unmoderated 243 or 357 when foxing. Have used an unmoderated 338LM before.

    Don't worry about it
