    Fox hunting

    Whats the fav rifle you all use i use .223

  2. #2
    Yep...i use .223
    They dont much like my 6.5x55 with 120grn noslers either though.
    Have probably shot more foxes with my hmr whilst out rabbit shooting than all my other rifles put together though!
    Loads of suitable options available

    .223 with the NV, 204R during long evenings in spring and summer.

    Was a .222 but its getting long in the tooth. New (to me) Sako 75 .243 arriving tomorrow. Unsure which ammo I'll settle for yet. I'll see how Hornady V-max perform.
    Nearly went .22-250 but having a Roe-legal calibre will be useful.

    .22/250 every time for me, ideally in a Ackley. Flat as you like, and I have two other rifles for the deer.

    Would agree with that,, Would be good if the 17 WSM was available, or the 5 MM rimfire

    Yes, I thought the same when I read the title of the thread. Thankfully hunting with hounds continues here.

    i get the most enjoyment out of taking a fox with my humble old .22lr as to be honest i know ive used my feild craft to get close enough to do the job but to be fair if im out just fox foxes i wont choose the .22lr, my most effective tool in the box is my .243 with the .22 hornet finding the middle ground but to be honest the hornet with the ability to take foxes out to 150yrds is enough gun for about 90% of the foxes i shoot
