    Largest Calibre

    As title, what is the lagest calibre you can use for lamping ?? (foxes) I am sure I was told once that a .243 was the largest ?? is this true.

    i hope not i use my .270 for foxing as at the moment its the only rifle i own i have a variation gone in for a few other calibres but the foxes have never complained

    ive got deer/fox control on my .308 so i assume i can use it lamping as it doesnt say fox whilst deer stalking.

    I have fox on my .30-06 no restrictions on time of day etc.

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.

    That's brilliant!

    Like flytie I have Fox conditioned on my 6.5x55. You've probably twigged there isn't one legal max, although you do here of some FLOs talking about the infamous "overkill"! The question of what is the largest calibre you SHOULD lamp with however tends to spark some interesting debate!
