Am looking at getting a .223 Rem bolt action mainly for using the inexpensive FMJ the club gets.
But, I would like the option of having a "general-purpose" (cringe) hunting round that would be adequate for foxes and small deer (CWD / Munties / Scottish Roe).
The rifle will have a 1:9 twist so heavier bullets shouldn't be a problem.
Please let me know your thoughts on factory rounds and also for handloading.
Thanks in advance,
