    DSC1 Question bank query

    I am doing my DSC1 at Wadhurst next week so glad of a long weekend to do some more swotting.

    Theres one question in the Bank I need some help with

    Expanding ammo and where can it be used

    answers are


    1 taget rifle shooting
    2 only for shooting vermin/estate work
    3 On a range in a stalking rifle
    4 for any purpose ( is zeroing and stalking I assume).

    I think the last option is correct but would appreciate confirmation .

    The full question is;
    "You are a keen target shooter as well as a stalker and find that your expanding bullet stalking ammunition is very accurate. What are your legal options
    a- you can use the expanding ammunition in your target rifle at competitions
    b- you can use expanding ammunition only in connection with stalking, vermin control and estate management
    c- you can use expanding ammunition at the club range competitions, but only in your stalking rifle
    d- you can use any ammunition/rifle combination for any purpose"

    Answer b is the correct answer - as expanding ammo can still be used at ranges or approved land for the purposes of target shooting/zeroing (this would be in connection with stalking etc).

    Number 2 is correct answer as you can only use expanding ammo on a range to zero your gun prior to Stalking/Vermin control activities. This is often done prior to going out on an accompanied stalk 3 rounds at the bull to satisfy the Stalker you can shoot accurately and for insurance purposes.

    Good luck with your exams
