    444 vs Fox

    Chuffed to bits, thanks to help on here finding some ammo, I took the treble four out to zero,
    on my way home, stopped by the farm, just to have a peep, and saw a fox sniffing around the yard, slipped the Marlin out, slid a few up the tube, and made ready, five mins later, I gave a few squeaks, and mr fox obligingly looked out from the end of the barn, nice safe shot, and now a fox with a huge gert hole in him, dropped there, big red mess behind him.

    Its never going to replace the 222 or 243, but its definitely a keeper
    Now, where are the boar ??

    Hi Pete,
    I have seen a few of them in action and they bring Boar down quite well.
    I'm off in November, December and January. I know we are full in November and January but I could always ask about December ;-)
    Any more news on the zeroing front ?

    Yes, I have a new load using 240gr scalloped jacketed hollow (or should that be 'cave') points, rabbits turn into furry bloody holes, and foxes lose the complete ribcage, stomach area I don't think I'll use them on anything I plan on eating.

    Regards

    Rabbit soup it is then. Just wait till you get some 265 interlocks to try on the local wildlife
