    I’m not 100% certain but as far as I’m aware, the minimum calibre allowed for HUNTING is 6mm.
    Smaller calibers are only allowed for culling or vermin control.

    Hi driepootx. When did these regulations come into force? There are a lot of requirements in that I have not heard of before.

    Take this approach, what species would you like to hunt with the .223 and where.
    Then the guys would be more informed to point you in the right direction.

    .223 can kill a lot of game, just not ideal for a lot either. Here in KZN, you will not get passed the gate on a regular game farm with a .223
