Ok, I will try and be brief!! Here is my current situation- I have a blaser, shoot .243 70gr for fox (which i love) then use .308 barrel when go out stalking. I do quite a bit of keepering and often run into anything from fox to large fallow. What im thinking of is one calibre to cover this range, I like the idea of the one rifle i carry round for everything. Yes, i hear you say my .243 will do the job, but there have been some limited occassions where i have lost some big fallow bucks into a neighbouring forest (Which i dont have permission to stalk in). I dont want to get into the legalities of this right now, but I would just feel more 'comfortable' with something around the 120gr mark for the bigger fallow. My main question would be would i feel disadvantaged on the foxing front with the 6.5 x55.? Most of my shots are small paddocks to 200 yards max. Its not like i would be consistantly taking on 250-300 yard shots.
