    oh dear

    Oh Dear I really feel for you. You've suffered both addictions in the same week. Theres no going back now

    Well done on the fallow and especially the foxes at this time of year. With regards to the foxes dead is dead and you wont mangle all of them. I used to use 95gr soft points and it didnt always mangle them, always killed em tho.

    Yep, the 243 is definitly addictive - I love mine, especially as it puts my favourite meat in the freezer, and puts Charlie beyond any hope of ever chasing rabbits or chickens again on my shoots!
