    Phone your FEO and find out how far into the process he/she is with this. You might be able to add a variation for the .22 CF if it's not too far down the line, and your certificate will come back with the additional calibre
    Sako 75 6.5x55 - Z6i 3-18x50. Sako 75 .308 Habicht 2.5-10x56. Beretta 690. Benelli M2.

    Hello, I've just been through this process. Luckily it didn't take too long but I agree that a polite call to the firearms licensing department shouldn't hurt. Unless you really think a .222 or .223 would be a more suitable caliber I'd stick it out with your .243. I only say this as I had the same thoughts whilst waiting for mine (as initially they were funny about me having a .243 as you only require a .222 to shoot roe in Scotland) but I was advised that if I started 'bartering' with them for a smaller caliber could make them question your need for a .243 in the first place. Some folk are having a real mare of a time with variations etc. It almost seems like any excuse to not give things out and they won't. I may be wrong but it's just what I was advised. I hope it makes sense and I hope it comes through soon for you.

    Hiya, When my ticket was away for renewal a few months ago , I added a 270 to it, I already had 222 and 243, not a single question about why I wanted it, tho, I gave them my reasons, and I do have access to lots of land, I told them my reasons for the 270 were for Sika and Reds, and as the triple is becoming a dedicated NV gun this year, and the 243 was for Roe and Fox, I was granted the 270 .
    If you have reason to need another rifle calibre, they should let you have it...
