Ok so to set the scene, I'm a full time gamekeeper and have been my whole working life, I've had an open FAC for fifteen years and a deer caliber (.243) slot for 10years. I'm required to shoot deer as part if my job and also do so recreationally. I've got game meat hygiene certificates and a DSC equivalent qualification (Deer management unit of level 3 countryside management diploma year one of which was based on dsc level 1).
I probably shoot in the region of 50-80 deer a year, of which 20 will be Fallow.
We're going up to shoot some Red this coming season and I've also decided to put NV on my .243 so I've applied for a .308 variation and plan to use it as my main deer rifle.
I assumed this would just be a paper exercise.
Just had a call fromTVP saying he wants to come out and have a chat about this as 'you know, .308 is a bigger caliber and all that'.
Im a bit baffled by this as he really didn't sound like he knew what he was on about on the phone so..
I want to be able to rebut anything he might use to block my variation so can you guys give me all the facts I need to keep him at bay
cheers in advance,
