Thread: First fox with the 30-06

    First fox with the 30-06

    Went out stalking with my brother for a buck yesterday in a small block of forest surrounded by fields with ewes and their lambs, we didn't see any roe buck, but we caught sight of a fox in the field with the ewes. We knew the farmer had been losing lambs so we crept up and I took the fox, a vixen at 110 meters with my 30-06.

    I'm sure you'll get good velocities from a 110 grain, the VV Reloading guide shows up to 1000m/s so i'm sure that should be flat enough.

    Hi Ed, I was using my new A-Tec Maxim, it's the Norwegian version so has 6 baffels, I'm really happy with it.
