Finally got my interview with my local FEO in just under two weeks. On my initial application I put .17hmr and .270 but in the five months since my application went in I got another couple of permissions on top of the existing so being honest I was wondering what people choices would be if you were working to a budget.
I would like to add a FAC Air Rifle as I have one small perm 15 acres ish where this would be a good tool for the job.
My other perms one is 500 acres for foxing so I thought maybe a .22 250- the FEO wont clear a .270 on this land which is frustrating I asked.
Other is 2000 acres with red, roe and sika so thought would keep a .270 but aybe a second hand 308 is better value for money
I am in the process of buying a house so budget is tight and have no qualms about swapping 270 for 308 22 250 for 204 etc so my question would be what do you think would be good value buys or alternative buys in the secondhand market. in total for the three probably have £2500 ish to spend and would rather get an average/ugly rifle but good glass.
