  • .223 vs Fox

    Just got back from a evenings hunt. I came across a fox at 110yds eating on a lamb leg. I drilled it in the heart dropping it instantly. I wasn't sure what was eating at the time of the shot. It was in a paddock full of sheep.

      Don’t poke the snake, walk around it and come back later with a double-barrelled shotgun and blow its [email protected]#!ing head off!.

      Australia in future, the outcome is the same, a bloody dictatorship run on the whims of a very few ego-centric pathological elitists.

          Yes had a lot of rain, and grass is green. Pretty dry underfoot so I expect it to dry up and to brown off.

        Well done, a trusty CF like .223 tend to stop them quickly with heart shots.

          Here's one the wife shot with the 223 Ruger using 55gn Nosler Shots - she hit in in the chest at a slight angle (just turned to run off when she lit it up) not sure if that's it's heart or what sitting on the side there! certain did a lot of damage at around 50m or so.

          Whacking Varmints is my passion!
