I currently have a .22-250 that is going to get rebarreled in 7mm-08.
On my FAC I currently have:
1. .22LR - empty
2. .22-250 - filled
3. 6.5x55mm - filled
4. 6.5x47mm - empty
I will have no further requirement for the .22-250 as it was purely for the donor action (stonking rifle though, with 3 in the same hole first time out, but too fast for any MOD range).
I will have no requirement for the 6.5x47mm
Question: What is the smartest plan to go about getting my FAC Variation for the 7mm-08?
Do I send the .22-250 off to the gunsmith, and then send in the Variation:
1. Showing the .22-250 as disposed of and ask for the 7mm-08 as a 1:1 for the .22-250 and lose the 6.5x47mm
2. Showing the .22-250 as disposed of and ask for the 7mm-08 as a 1:1 for the 6.5x47mm and lose the .22-250
Ok, on paper it makes s*d all difference, as I end up with an FAC with 6.5x55mm and 7mm-08, however... the 7mm will then get added on, but with the same serial number as the .22-250, so does THAT make the difference?
Any thoughts, or should I just contact my FEO and then ask you all again when he holds his hands up in horror!!
Hoping that someone's been through this recently, or that James/Jager, et al pop up with the answer immediately
