I have never owned a centre fire smaller than a .243 but fancy a designated foxing rifle. And fancy either of the above just wondered what people thoughts on the two were!!!
Between 223 and 204 which i shoot both I would say recoil is the only factor which if using nv edges me towards the 204.I'm first to admit I know sweet FA about either of these calibres but would like to ask the genuine question of what's the benefits of these over a 222 or 223 ?
Ps.... all using say a 40grn vmax ?
Much obliged matey cheersThe .220 with a 40gr bullet will be well over the 4000fps mark , and the .204 with 32gr bullets isnt too far behind, i suppose you can say then the difference is outright velocity, but then they will all do the job very well, the .222/.223 time proven very capable fox/vermin rounds, very accurate etc etc, it all comes down to personal preference at the end of the day, i like the .220 just because its one of quickest rounds. The .204 has mild recoil and you can spot your shots, but then to so has the .222 imo, owned one many years ago. Hope that answers your question, cheers.
