    Mongoose,

    If you are in the **** with a creature causing imminent threat to life/serious injury to livestock or a person then I reckon this is your "get out of jail card".

    Now, you have to be able to present your case in court but if there are dead beasts, scarred humans and half a dozen ambulances.....

    Nope, you would be using your expanding ammunition in accordance with the conditions on your FAC, but not your firearms.... You would have to throw the bullets at the lion

    That's correct, it's standard wording to cover all possible scenarios... and possibly the most commonly misunderstood condition.

    I see thanks for clearing that up certainly a strange condition though, I wonder if anybody has ever had to use it in anger.....

    You are only required to use expanding ammunition on Deer because of the Deer Act.

    Saving humans and livestock that are in immenent life threatening situations, where the se of firearms are appropriate, does mean whatever you mean.
