When I was shooting for pelts the .22 magnum was the best calibre most of the time as the foxes were real close and easy to shoot. A very effective round and cheap to buy. I also used .223 for long range shots. And yes , the .17 is gaining populatity for the reason you say.
Foxes here are near plauge proportions and do untold damage to our native fauna. Them along with feral cats. I imagine the person/s that decided to introduce foxes all those years ago would be turning in his grave now.
