Morning all, applied for my FAC, 22lr and hmr (can justify both). My plan was to ask the FEO about hmr for fox and assuming he says no, ask for either a .222 or .223. My police force is Thames Valley and I have a decent amount of permission cleared for .243 at least, probably .308.
I therefore have a couple of questions:
1. What's the likelyhood of being granted a .22CF on a first FAC?
2. If you had to choose between 222 or 223 which would you go for? I'll be using factory ammo to begin with but that may change with time. Really keen for something standard and well known, I know that things like the 204 are great but I want easy availability of ammo etc.
Please don't use this as an arguing the pros and cons of hmr for fox, I've read it all, seen it in real life and understood
