a little bit of advice please.
I have a closed certificate and I have applied for a 243 to my local force, along with 2 permission letters from landowners to control the deer.
my dilemma is that I have done this via a variation on my certificate. I want to drop my 308, in place for the 243.
I have been asked, why do I want to do this, as the 308 will do the same job as the 243?
my reply was that as I also shoot foxes, I wanted a more all round rifle, and a better choice of ammunition, and not have to take two rifles with me, i.e. my 223, and my 308.
if you were my FEO, would you be happy with this answer, or could I give them an alternative answer?
Thanks in advance.
