i find it much better to take 2 guns out with you, concentrate on the rabbits first, then change over guns & onto the fox.
But if i had no choice i would have to choose the .223

well i said .22lr he said he was rabbiting with the possibility of a fox.........theres one outstanding rabbit gun,...the .22lr and should a fox get seen within say 50yards then pop in a stinger and bump him off.......I have cleanly killed foxes to 100yards max being 109yards with stingers(always got dog with me to back up the shot)
Thats just what I did when I first got my .22lr did the job fine but didnt push it to far 100 yards max, had a lot of foxes with it but got myself a .222 and a .243 for fox /deer. Now I only have the.22lr and the .17hmr both have their jobs mostly rabbits hares and the odd close fox.
