Thread: Variation.

  1. #1


    I have had my own FAC for around a year now and currently have a 22lr and .222 on my ticket and have used around 300 and 100 rounds through each respectivley. I am hoping to add a 22-250 that I have been offered for a very reasonable price. I want to chop the 22-250 and use it from a vehicle for foxes and as its synthetic no worries about knocking chunks out of it. I want to keep my .222 as is and use it when im out for Roe. My only worry is that because I already have a .222 they may not grant me the slot for 22-250. Is asking for the extra slot for a similar calibre a lost cause or are the reasons stated enough to justify the 22-250? Any thoughts appreciated.

    are you sure one of them is not going to be used (ie set up for nightvision only) wink wink, good reason

    one for day one for night

    If you are only going to use the 22-250 for night shooting foxes , you could go down the route of having it with night vision set up on it.

    Had a similar issue myself last year with having a 30-06 and wanting to add a 270
    Reason - Zeroed at different ranges. 100 yrds for woodland Sika 30-06 and 270 zeroed at 200 for hill reds - Authorised

    I had similar too. Had a 25-06 and applied for a 30-06. When asked why I wanted such similar calibres I said because you won't let me shoot boar with my 25-06. "oh yeah" came the reply - Authorised
