    .22 Centrefire on FAC

    Hi guys, I'm currently completing a variation form. I'll most likely get a .222 but could I write in .22 CF on my application to allow me to choose a .223 or 22-250 etc if the right one comes up? Thanks in advance.

    A year ago I would have said probably yes. However, under the new Police Scotland regime, I very much doubt it.

    Talk to them directly and ask if they will allow you to explicitly list ".222 OR .223 OR .22-250".

    Thanks, I would have just put in .224" but I think that may confuse a lot of people and cause problems. I'll stick a note in with the variation explaining what I require.

    ive had that on my fac before. 22 and 17 cf. also 6mm cf.

    they have stopped doing that here now though which is a shame. imo as it saves them work back at the office. you change your mind and have to send it back off.
    its just easier i think if they done it like above

    That most likely would, I recently put a variation in for .22H and .223, along with my ammo I asked for 1000 .224 expanding heads. They phoned me up and asked me of these were for a different calibre!! I said no but could I have an additional 500 exp each for the above 2 rifles and that did the trick....

    You will almost certainly have to state exactly what chambering you want as there's a significant difference between, for example a .22 hornet and a .22-243

    For what it's worth the .222 is an exemplary cartridge, and I'm sure you would love it.

    Thanks, guys. If I apply for a variation I'm going to just go for .222 - I really like the Baikal izh18 mh which is only offered in .222
