I currently hold a firearms certificate for .22 rimfire and .222 centrefire, these are on closed conditions for fox and AOLQ.
I have spoke with my local FEO about swapping the .222 for a deer legal calibre. As per home office guidance they are happy for me to acquire either a .243 or a 6.5x55.
I just need to get my permission wrote up again, to send in and proof of future/past stalking.
What's the difference between them?
Which would you purchase?
Which will serve me a lifetime of stalking?
I know the local gun shops keep ammo in both calibres but not in huge supplies. I will be using factory loads.
Not trying to start arguments or cause trouble I just can't decide which would be more beneficial to me.
Thanks for your help
