    I think I’m coming round to a 223 tbh as agree to all your points. I’m still very much a novice with loads / ammunition if I’m honest and hopefully the fao will agree and hopefully grant my first centerfire. A good friend of mine loads his own so I will have guidance if needed. Appreciate the advice it’s what this place is all about.

    Yes hmr is legal for fox in Hertfordshire and I’m sure a kiss behind the ear on a muntjac at close range would sort it out I will certainly mention those points regarding loadings to the fao when he eventually comes to visit as there so behind at the moment. I’ve only had the hmr a year so might be pushing my luck on the 223 and I like to eat munties and I’ve seen the damage a 233 can do so a 222 would be my choice as it’s the smallest legal calibre i believe

    Didn’t want to derail this thread by starting talking about guns / ammunition etc but they do seem to go together. The reason I’m going for a.222 is that it’s the smallest Calibre legal for fox and muntjacs and that’s all I require. I know the hmr is more than capable of dispatching both but not legally 😉.
