    Well, if legend is to be believed and you intend this to be high count rifle, barrel life in the Swift should be factored. That said how many years will it take you to notch-up 1000 foxes??

    The other thing to consider if not acquiring a custom built rifle is that of who offers the 220 chambering. This T3 does not come in Swift but rather 22-250:

    .22 WMR and NV - last forever and cheaper ammunition - simples
    For Gods sake - don't tell her how much I've spent

    If your after a purely fox only rifle I'd go eigher .22 hornet , .222 or .223 quieter and cheaper to feed than .243

    If your after a fox and deer rifle then .243 is the one

    +1 - Hornet if you're a sniper - good out to 230yds confirmed this end

    I've already got a .243 and it's the best thing I've had never let me down and bowled over 136 foxes in 2015- and 112 in 2014 and so far this year it's about 34 so can't fault the rifle just fancied a change, not a big fan of the .223 or .222 . A friend of mine did have a .220 swift and I thought it was a nice flat fast rnd .
    Not looked into these .17 hornets but may have too .

    nothing really, I use to use a 270 and a 243, it's just my normal reply to the question " which is the best calibre "
