Great shooting!

I've been thinking of turning one of my Tikkas into a 222. Wish I could get a factory one here.

Good story, nice, very nice Fox!

.222 is a great little caliber for varmints out to 400yds or so especially if you intend on harvesting hides.

It and the .22 hornet are both great little varmint rounds that have lost popularity over the last thirty years or so because they are not "new and cool" but they'll darn sure get the job done.

Of course being extremely cheap to shoot don't hurt a bit either!
