The purpose of this post is to help a friend whom is looking for some advise on which calibre to get for fox and deer in the UK.
I use a .270 and love it! It will drop any UK deer and as for a fox, well I've never seen one survive a hit from a .270. I also think it a beautifully flat firing round and depending on the number of grain bullet you choose you can drop anything from a fox to a healthy size boar and even a stag but that's enough from me. Now it's your turn, So please give your opinions and thoughts.
I'm aware that in some counties in the UK the .270 is not deemed suitable for fox according to the police but we are dorset based and our FAO is happy for .270 to be used on fox.
I look forward to you your comments
