    Dear Op Think Iv butted in on conversations regarding 204R before but I’ll mention my findings again. I had a lovely Sako 85 in 204R with a 20 inch barrel and shot hundreds of foxes over a couple of years but could never get the velocity I wanted and after failing to get it rebarreled to a sensible 26 inch sold it. ( I only say sensible as I can’t see the point in running a high velocity round out of a short barrel if your chasing “laser tragectories” ). I got a bit pissed off with the 204R because I missed the odd one due to the small bullets 32-39 gn not bucking the wind all that well at 2-350m. Also the only foxes I had run shot with it were ones shoulder shot, which happened a few times. I came to the conclusion it didn’t penetrate all that well on say a big dog fox. If you want to cleanly kill foxes every time I’d recommend a .223 caliber pushing a 50-55gn bullet as fast as you can get it. Or better still a 6mm. If your only going to shoot the occasional fox and not go out in all weather get the 204R. But if your serious about it maybe get something other than what a lot of other people recommend as good for “rabbits and crows”. Ill say it again you can never over gun a fox! Ben

  10. She’s a beauty mate, my personal defender is an early td5 90 they are fantastic trucks, mines on nearly 200k and still purring. Good luck with the sale, it’s a good price with all the mods, a few dings and scratches only add character to a landy!

    Summer Boots

    https://www.brandecosse.com/product/fagiano/ I now wear these all day all year, can’t fault them got a high pair also for the winter. Went off Meindl as the insoles wear through rapidly and the rubber rind peels off. They’re not cheap but my first pair are 4 years old now and still going strong after a lot of hard wear. Splash out treat your feet. Ben
