I have 22LR, 22WMR and 222.
The conditions of my certificate are as follows:
Part 5: The .22 & .222 RIFLES SOUND MODERATORS & AMMUNITION to which this certificate relates shall be used for VERMIN CONTROL (.22) & VERMIN/GROUND GAME/HARES/FOX (.22WMR & .222) and for zeroing & practice on RANGES, or LAND deemed suitable by the CHIEF OFFICER of POLICE for the area where the land is situated and over which the holder has lawful authority to shoot.
Part 6: The holder of this certificate may possess, purchase or acquire expanding ammunition or the missiles of such ammunition in the calibers authorised by this certificate and may use such ammunition only in connection with:
The shooting of vermin or, in the course of carrying on activities in connection with the management of any estate, other wildlife.
- So as it reads, does that mean I cannot purchase expanding ammo for foxes, ground game or hares?
- Currently I believe cannot shoot muntjac or cwd with my .222 and am also not allowed to go north of the border to shoot roe with .222 as my cert doesn't state DEER, however; can someone define what GROUND GAME is? Just rabbit and hare? Or are deer classed as ground game?
- Can i shoot expanding ammo for zeroing and practice?
P.s. This isn't about me abusing the conditions of my license, i just need to know if i need to write to the local plod and ask them to add DEER to my .222 when i put in for my .243
