I am in the process of filling in my first FAC application.
My aim is to get a .308 which I know some forces do not like for a first FAC application. My reasons are as follows.
1. I am from Scotland and have access through a friend to red deer stalking.
2. I would like to try Boar shooting.
3. I plan to shoot a fair amount at targets on an approved range and have priced up FMJ .308 a fair bit cheaper then .243 fmj.
Are the above valid reasons for applying for a .308 rather than the more usual .243?
I have been a game shooter and SGC holder for around 15 years and have a bit of stalking experience through a family friend using an estate rifle.
