Thread: Sub Sonic Load

  1. #1

    Sub Sonic Load

    Can anyone help with a subsonic load for a 22-250, the reason for asking is sometimes I am asked to shoot foxes close to expensive horses.
    Some are pure thoroughbred and very flighty.
    Cheshire Firearms wont allow rimfire for foxes.

    sorry to sidetrack
    Cheshire Firearms wont allow rimfire for foxes. ???????
    at appropriate ranges accurate .22 and .17 are lethal for foxes.
    so everyone has to get an extra, hv .222 if they might bump into a fox.

    You can not get rimfire on your FC in Cheshire for foxes, 22 mag and 17 HMR ok but both too much noise

    Try trail boss. Got some load data round here somewhere.

    Trailboss info is on the Hodgdon website, don't think you'll get subsonic though, iirc, 1600fps is as low as they recommend.

    I wonder how Cheshire are able to justify not allowing .22LR for foxes, given that the HO Guidance para 13.23 seems OK with the idea.

    Surrey doesnt like to give .22 for foxes either
    .308, because if I want to watch something run away, I'll take my dog for a walk.

    I thought that 22 WMR and 17 HMR were rimfires
    You say they are ok but too much noise, moderated I still think that they will be quieter than a downloaded 22-250.
    Perhaps trapping and humane dispatch at another site is a better alternative?
    I am not a big fan of thoroughbreds either having done extensive tree work around various race tracks/stables. I know what you mean about flighty, you only need to look at them wrong. Theres also the issue that most of them are worth big bucks and if they injure themselves because of something that you have done you're right up the creek without a paddle.....
