Following on from the earlier thread regarding shooting deer in your own garden if you if an open FAC are you able to chrono a bullet in your own garden? I dont mean shooting 'down range' as such I mean shooting into a suitable purpose made back stop close to the rifle. The reason I ask is in the past when I have developed a load for my rifle it means driving to a suitable area then a 2 mile walk with the rifle and all the gear. Then again to test the next loads and so on. Now before anyone bites my head off, I live in the sticks and have around 1/3 of ann acre of garden. I want to see if this is possible before I call the firearms dept as I am sure they will umm and err. I am only talking a few rounds with a sound mod. Yes I realise this would be a no no if I was living in the centre of london but like I say I am in the country and my nieghbours are all pretty good regarding such issues.... though I think that could be due to the odd bit of venni I give them
Edit....forgot to say my garden is cleared for FAC air rifle , that was when I had a closed ticket, police also said to use my shotgun when Charlie came to see the hens.
