I am returning to deer stalking after living in the far east for 20 years where it was very difficult to own a rifle/shotgun etc. I stalked for approx 15 years before leaving and reloaded all my own ammunition (.308/.222/.243)
Everything has move on since returning to the UK for instance, I have a BDS stalkers certificate from 1987 and find it is no longer valid and will have to upgrade to DSC 1. ( which I will do next month with Jon Snowden)
I have become aware that expanding bullets are now counted towards your final ammunition allowance which was not the case 25-30 years ago.
My FAC application is with the Police at present, and I have applied for 150 rounds of ammo for each calibre. .308/6.5x55/.243.
As I intend to reload and bullets are normally sold in 100 boxes:
a. I need to increase the quantities but by how much and what is reasonable.
b. If I change before issue does it require a variation.
I do have a FEO visit on 29th, could I make some sort of change at the visit.
Any help as always is appreciated.
