4c_game_chaser said:just my personal opinion, but unless you are going to hand load, neither of those guns are good for fox. They will be awesome for the other 2 species, but will blow a fox in half which kinda makes it pointless to kill one.
I'll second what he said.
If you do hand load, look into the 22-250 and the barnes varmint grenade bullets, you can load them down to 36grains
Good luck and enjoy whatever caliber you choose
ALOT of Pa. Deer hunters use 243's. I wonder if they know it's not an effective cartridge.TrophyHunter11 said:
I'm sure the deer I shot with my 6mm would disagree about it's effectiveness on deer. Some were over 300 yards.WildTigerTrout said:

The 243 Win., 6MM Rem., and the 240 Weatherby Mag. are all great Deer cartridges. IMO the 6mm's in general are magic on Pa. Deer.RayRay said:All the ones shot with my 6mm either dropped on the spot or within 30 yards. They were all heart & lung shots.
