Fox shooting

A bit graphic. Shot with 6.5x55. Used Norma 120g ballistic tip.

    Good shooting. Easier skinning. Not so sure on the stretching. Actually not so sure on the skinning either.

    Hello drBill.I think you may be right about skinning and stretching .
    Luckily we don't use the skins over here.We just shoot them to help the game birds along.

    Nice going Sittin Duck, is that Sako a 75?

    I'm seriously considering a Sako 85 in 6.5x55.

    Hello Mr Smith.
    Yes that is a sako 75. Im sure you would have no problem with the 85.
    I have seen them ,they are a lovely rifle. Best of luck with it if you purchase one.

    Thanks Sittin Duck, I'm certainly leaning towards the 85.

    IMO the 85s are not quite as well made or as nice as the 75.
