that makes a lot of sense, especially at that range. curious, are foxes there a pest animal or do you hunt them for meat/pelt?In England .223 is used mainly for foxes and two small breeds of deer.
My short barreled .223 has accounted for a lot of foxes and deer with the farthest fox being 237y. Where I shoot, it is mainly small fields and rolling hills so a short barreled, light .223 is perfect for the job.
also, that doesn't look like a short barrel in your photo, no? i know .223 loses a lot of velocity under 11/10".
