    I don't really know about England, Wales or Northern Ireland, but I believe the exception for CWD and Muntjac only applies to .22 centrefires from .222 up .... I may be wrong.

    However, in Scotland, the "small" deer is Roe and the rules are simple. You must use an expanding bullet with a minimum weight of 50grains. It must also have a muzzle velocity (M.V.) of not less than 2,450ft/second and muzzle energy (M.E.) of not less than 1,000 ft/lbs

    It's not a .22 centre fire so won't comply in England & Wales. No need to worry about the north of Ireland yet as I don't think they are there anyway.

    i,ve got a 22/250, but was going to get something to put night vision on,(not used on deer) realy would be for fox mainly, so now thinking 204 or 20 tac. but will post something on that in the right section.
    thanks again for the advice. stav

    Stav, keep your 22/250 brilliant piece of kit, flat trajectory, no recoil, and fit for muntjac & CWD
