unless a clean head shot foxes seem to eat up 17hmr ballistic tips, is their another bullet from the same gun that could take down a fox?

  What kind of chest cavity wounds are you seeing?  May be a penetration problem.  If so I'd try the CCI GamePoint 20gr Jacketed Spire Point.  I read a comment where someone has had good luck with them on beaver who have very tough hides.

  Soft hair for sure. That's why they were so valued for the hides yrs back.  But try skinning one.  I've only had to do it one time.  Whacko

The FMJ 17rounds have show some promise on fox size game for me.  Its not my first choice for them but definately capable of dispatching them cleanly.
