Re: Fox Calibre - What's YOUR Choice?

I picked up a lovely early 90s Winchester Model 70.

I went for .243 as I couldn't really justify two centrefire calibres - it was a heart/lung shot on both munties and I still got a good amount of meat from them. There is still some in the freezer actually 8-)

I went with .243 in the end, my FEO had no issue with it as I was also stalking down in Bedford :D

Does anyone have any tips on the best way to hunt squirrel (time of day, location, etc?) I've not shot m...

Re: Getting back out there...

Very very good to see you returning to the fold (especially with a hunting write up ). I'm another that's been a bit remiss as far as posting on here of late due to a variety of reasons (new insomsiac baby, irritable wife, health etc ) but I also dugout the rifle recently and got her zeroed in so I...

I was thinking of .223 but .222 seems to be a little cheaper in terms of the rifle and my local RFD has an abundance of both calibre ammunition in stock. What d...

Re: Getting back out there...

Nice! Rabbits are starting to show again on my permissions but still nowhere near the numbers of 5 or 6 years ago. Add to that her Ladyship is a bit fond of rabbits so as I prefer horizontal jogging to rabbit meat I've only removed the odd 1 or 2. All my usual wheat and barley fields are down to ma...
