I have recently applied for an FAC (.308) - one specified rifle for Deer Culling (+ Fox, Target and AOLQ). I am aware of the Home Office Guidance and felt that everything they needed was on the application.
Received a phone call today to ask for additional information to include my experience of using a .308 etc. and the justification of such a big calibre.
I have written back very politely to point out that all the justification is detailed within my application as per Home Office Guidelines BUT I have provided them on a voluntary basis with additional reasons why. (How to win friends and influence people!)
This information is provided purely to aid anybody else applying for a calibre legal for deer control within Avon & Somerset.
