  1. Can't Decide On A Fox Calibre

    I'd be looking at a second hand set up. With some better mods/scope than the bundle rubbish.
  2. Can't Decide On A Fox Calibre

    No deals like that about now. Like £950 for a dildo with a scope
  3. Can't Decide On A Fox Calibre

    Was looking at tikka t3. Look good and light. Synth stock which I'm not keen on but worth the sacrifice
  4. Can't Decide On A Fox Calibre

    Yeah. They seem great. Do t like the dildo stock though! Prefer wood so finding one in laminate would be ideal

    Damn. The catty seem financially viable!I'd be getting 2nd hand and that puts me off the 22-250 even more due to being labelled "barrel burners" As far As cost of a rifle 2nd hand and ammo goes the .223 wins. The fact that I'm only getting one out of necessity, is a big factor. Farmer says just get rid of the big dog foxes if I see one. Doesn't want them annihilated just kept on top of. I suppose come lambing season it'll be a different story. But shelling lots for something that may not get used much doesn't make sense. Which is why I think.223. Less expensive to but on the used market and slightly cheaper ammo. I'd stick with the .22lr but it's just not capable at the range I see em. If you don't want the cost of rifle and ammo, invite somebody along with an open ticket to shoot them for you, you never know you may get some shooting ect in return My friends who shoot have plenty land and do invite me regularly so that's not really incentive or issue. My main goal is a quick dispatch in the safest possible way. As I said before they do have a caravan site with people frequenting it so having a slightly quieter crack is ideal. Again. I do like the idea of less dicking about with hold over/dialing in. But worry about second hand 22 250 being knackered. I really only want to spend about £600 on rifle and mod. In which .223 comes in nicely. Not seen too many 22 250 in good nick for that (as yet) Depending on what make of rifle you want, York guns do a Baikal break barrel .223 for under £300 my pal has one and is more than capable of 200 yd foxes............cheap knock about rifle that does the job......... and luckely for him the rifle he chose likes ppu ammo @ £13 a box I was looking at howa 1500 or tikka t3. A Remington mk11 also. I suppose it depends what's about when/if my variation is granted

    Definitely not going to be reloading any time soon
  9. Can't Decide On A Fox Calibre

    Like I said. I don't really want to be over gunned. As much as I'd want a 22 250 I think it's a bit much for the land I have. I won't be reloading so it's straight out the box for me. Again why the 223 appeals. I suppose I've made a big u turn. Just to be straight. The land is cleared for 308. I don't have one. I looking for a foxing calibre solely for this land. I begrudge killing anything if it isn't actually causing a problem on the land or I don't eat it. Sounds odd I know. But shoot for food or because of issues with pest. Never been one to blast something just because it's there or I can. Thanks for the input. 22 250 would be nice but might be a tad over gunning

    ???? why do think the 223 does it better than the .222? Obviously you have your opinion but after owning both I cannot split them and opted for the .222 everyone to their own I guess To be honest I'm a bit surprised you said that. Looking at .222 and .223 simplistically I have always been surprised how much different they feel to shoot. Both are easy of course, but the .222 is sweet! I settled for .223 though. The .223 carries a hint more energy but for most real world experiences that isn't worth losing sleep over! The difference in performance isn't worth the worry, but they feel and even sound a lot different to me, but whatever floats your boat! All the above very true Deker, I've yet to see a .223 kill a fox any better than a .222 or visa versa, like you say whatever floats your boat.Bullitt whatever you choose .223 222 22-250 the end result will be the same for the fox, good luck with your choice You're not wrong there. Very much seems a horses for courses choice Thanks for the input

    ???? why do think the 223 does it better than the .222? Obviously you have your opinion but after owning both I cannot split them and opted for the .222 everyone to their own I guess Just the general consensus of some of the guys I shoot with and a lot of fixers. Don't get me wrong the .222 is very popular. The 223 seems that people prefer the weight and slight more power. As well as the rounds being a bit cheaper
  12. Can't Decide On A Fox Calibre

    Lots of food for thought. The farmer likes the odd dear so they are a no go. Near the buildings there is a caravan site the farmer owns so I wouldn't be firing off near there. I'd be further in the valley. Funny you mention downhill. The farm runs down hill with walls between fields. River is at the very bottom with the woods. Hasn't stopped it being cleared for 308 though. But safety is a big factor. I think a 223 seems like a happy medium. Does everything just a bit better than the 222.
  13. Can't Decide On A Fox Calibre

    How's the volume?
  14. Can't Decide On A Fox Calibre

    This is why asked. Only used centre fires down range and at range. I'm a capable shooter and frequently take bunnies crows and pigeons at 100yards with fac air and my 22lr. Basically as my variation is going in I don't want to just put down the biggest I can get away with. Trying to be semi responsible and get something suitable for my needs. I just want to choose the round that will do the job. The flatter trajectory and more capable of the 22-250 is what attracted me to it. My field craft will need adapting to foxing and that'll take some practice Maybe I should have just said. Opinions on favourite fox rounds? .223 is a popular choice and something I should like at in more depth.
  15. Can't Decide On A Fox Calibre

    I'm only gauging from what ibjave seen on the land. Lots of open land and looking at my markers (trees and bushes) I think around 250 will where most appear from. I can try and squeek em in. I Don't want to be over or under gunned. Think I'll have to try squeaking them in closer. The question still stands though. Which round
