    Could be wrong, but I suspect not, I think you'll find whilst its the same diameter bullet, the magnum part of the name identifies it as a seperate calibre, they are after all not interchangeable rounds within one firearm being as one has a significantly larger case length.
    I may well be corrected though.

    its an error on the part of your FLO and will be dependant entirely on your Firearms office and the RFD selling

    If I was an RFD I wouldn't sell you a WMR without confirmation from the Firearms office.

    ring your office and then get the RFD to call when you are purchasing

    I have spoken to our friends at the Licensing Department and they stated that you can go for the one you fancy.

    its .22, it's rimfire. Yes. Thus the reason you can get semi auto .22wmr, because its still a .22 rimfire. It's all the same legally. Shame they can't/won't put .22cf on 'aquire' instead of .223, .222 etc :/

    +2 .22 rimfire counts for either lr or wmr or indeed rimfire short, cb etc., what is not permitted is .22 centrefire atb Tim

    .22rf IS .22rf - whether that be .22 short, .22 long, .22 long rifle or .22 WMR = ALL are .22rf

    The FAC autorisation is for caliber NOT chambering - their wording in the Firearms Acts revolves around caliber
    IF however you just had ".22" as the permission you could also add such things as .22 Hornet & others to the possible list of what to buy

    I had .22RF on my licence and phoned my FLO and asked if i could buy a .22WMR they said that because the WMR was classed as a rimfire it would be okay, however no so according to my FEO who said because its a magnum it is not a standard rimfire and will need a seperate variation, so not even people within the same department can agree!
    I purchased said gun from a warwickshire RFD as my local gunshop would not entertain the idea even though the same county FLO and my assurance that it was okay with the office, i even suggested they phone them up, they obviously did not want the sale.
