now you moved the goal posts a bit quote;" I’m wanting a smaller calibre for long range bunnies/ corvids which will also be used for the odd fox.";quoteThanks for the offer but i’m In bucks. Might look at the 222 more closely . I have mainly muntjac so it would cover all basis. Don’t fancy taking shots at 300 yards with a 22 on a regular basis plus it’s not the best for fox. It’s probably going to be mostly used at night so the flat trajectory would be welcome but not a deal breaker because I doubt shots will be much over 150 yards
now you're talking dedicated night rifle, so no crows then? you halfed the expected range, and now its a muntjac rifle too, but you are considering 17, hornet?
you sound very confused as to what you want a rifle for,
so to summarise.
to enable you to shoot,,
fox, day and night.
rabbits, day and night.
at up to realistically 150_300 yds.
any of these,,
222,223, 204, 22/250
