    If the owner wants you to control them then get him to put something in writing, then there is your good reason. Send that and your variation for a deer legal calibre of your choice to your police force and you are away.

    Be prepared to justify, to an extent, your choice of calibre, whether the ground is safe for that calibre (yes, I know ), your experience etc. Also be prepared for them to ask for DSC1, mentor etc. and be prepared to negotiate accordingly!

    +1 .223 ok in Scotland but not England or Wales. I would suggest .243 using 100 grain bullets all bases covered everywhere

    don't get a .243 when you already have a .223, go for something larger so you can use it comfortably for sika and reds as well, otherwise you'll find yourself wanting another one when you go up north to gods country. I suggest 6.5x55 or .308, even though 30-06 or .270 would be good too, if the majority of use is for roe you don't want to go too big either.

    +1 for 6.5x55mm With 140gr ammo will drop anything in the UK
