oh dear

Oh Dear I really feel for you. You've suffered both addictions in the same week. Theres no going back now :D

Well done on the fallow and especially the foxes at this time of year. With regards to the foxes dead is dead and you wont mangle all of them. I used to use 95gr soft points and it didnt always mangle them, always killed em tho.

Yep, the 243 is definitly addictive - I love mine, especially as it puts my favourite meat in the freezer, and puts Charlie beyond any hope of ever chasing rabbits or chickens again on my shoots!
