I have a hr single shot in 204, its great but im going to get a Mossberg MVP its awsome laminated stock, bull barrel, 10rn mag. I should get one by april, Mvp stands for mossberg varmit predator... I also like the thompsob center venture, but I like bull barrels because I reload and I like to shoot. my hr has a very heavy barrel and thats a hot round, if you plan on target shooting a light wieght hunting rifle is not a great choice.

I've got a browning A-bolt II varmint, and love it. It shoots factory 32gr vmax bullets under 1/2 an inch at 100 yards. They're kind of hard to find though.

Great groundhog and coyote gun but moves a bit fast for fox. Has a tendency to tear them up pretty good. Def go with the T/C Venture.

Any one of these rifles are good, what you need to do is go and look over the diff. ones, shoulder them, see what one fits and feels good and go from there.

I have shot 2 fox this year with my 30.06 with 150 grain psp that shreds them. Haha. one was a head shot at around 50yds between the glows and pretty much blew off the bottom half of its head. The other was shot on 1st day of deer season out of my treestand with my 760 30.06 pump and shooting downward I took it between the front shoulders and it gutted and opened up the whole underneath of its body.

I'm kind of shocked no one mentioned the tikka t3 super varmint. Another thing is some people say just get a .223 instead of a .204 any suggestions?

I was just on brownings site and the only varmint gun i can find there is the x-bolt varmint stalker and they don't offer it in a 204. I looked at the a-bolts and found gun you have but has a note under the picture that they are no longer in production last time they were in the catalog was 2007.

Waste of a fox and not to mention illegal during deer season.
