Hi all have a slot for a variation on my FAC for a 17 hmr but am thinking about doing a swap for a different cal due to already owning a 243,223 and 22rimmy , so was toying with the idea of a dedicated night vision rifle set up in something different or using what I already own and adjusting to suit ? Any thoughts or suggestions lads , ATB Bone
If you home load TAC 20 or my favourite 20BR. Then get rid of the 223.
HMR makes a very good NV rifle because the trajectory's pretty flat, of course that's if your main NV use is rabbiting.
But this is the wrong section for general questions, best ask a mod to move it.
I've got a lovely t3 in .204 for sale

Nothing wrong with the HMR if your wanting to bash those rabbits.
The question comes when your out with the HMR and you see Charlie at 100 plus yards away.... I'm probably the wrong person to ask as have .22LR, HMR, 204 & 223, but the CF's do get used for longish range bunny shooting day & night.
That said, your permissions will dictate whether the HMR has its place, some landowners don't mind the 'bang' of a CF, but the HMR's are more neighbour friendly....
Did you have a 17 HMR? If so what gun did you have? I've just bought a cz American and was after some reviews
I'm selling my HMR CZ varmint,
It's in the for sale section !!

If you want to shoot foxes at night then mount your NV on your 223 and get a 204 for long range crow busting
