I have had a lengthy chat with my FLO today and now i'm none the wiser.
I am going to change my 6.5x55 and get myself a blaser .270. what i wanted to do was get a slot on my ticket for a 270 before i got rid of the 6.5 then i wont be without a rifle.
As i've got a 17hmr that i dont use i thought i'd simply do a 1 for 1 swapping the 17 for a .270 then i could get rid of the 6x5 at my leisure. he told me that i needed to fill in a variation form and send a letter asking for a temperary permit for the 17 then i could take up to 2 months to sell it. he said that if i sell the hmr first then apply for a 270 it wont be a one for one?
When doing a one for one do you have to dispose of the unwanted calibre first?
All i want to do is sell the HMR, get a slot for a .270 then when i've bought a new rifle i'll sell the 6.5 and i was sure there was a simple way of doing this.
what is the best way to do this?
