Been musing about some saftey concerns, and I'd appreciate thoughts or actual experience on the following:
What would you generally expect a .222 soft point bullet to do after hitting a fox in the head, at about 75m?
I had a bit of a scare recently - shooting at night, the solid bank I thought was behind a fox turned out to be an old fence draped in ivy and dead leaves. And behind that was someone's garden.
Fortunately, no ill effects. Yes, entirely my fault on every count, I should have known the ground better and so on - assume I've anticipated all possible criticisms and levelled them at myself. How far and in what sort of shape is that bullet likely to have gone?
