After scrolling around in this section of the forum I'm surprised at how many instances there seem to be of conditions on FACs limiting the calibre to be used over named land.
Of course it's a nonsense that any area should be thought to have a calibre limit imposed on it - if I were an open cert holder I could shoot on land that had only been 'authorised' for .22RF for another shooter provided I had permission, so where's the reasoning behind it?
I'd be very interested to hear if anyone has any information about the criteria police land inspections are based on and the qualifications held by those undertaking them. Is it the ordinary FLOs that do the inspections in your area or is there an 'UberFLO' who is qualified in field range work and knows the implications of using various calibres in different terrain? Has anyone challenged a land inspection and/or asked for the reasoning behind the decision in writing? Has anyone had the FL dept back down on an inspection condition when challenged?
If land/calibre restrictions are commonplace it looks like something that should be pursued by the shooting organisations.
