    No, but to buy expanding ammo, you need to have it on your FAC, to buy FMJ you don't.

    But once FMJ are assembled, they count towards your quantity held allowance. Expanding bullets are already counted towards your holding allowance.

    You are not licenced for any other component part required for reloading.

    So to summarise-

    You can buy FMJ Bullets and everything to assemble a "round" with out being in posession of a FAC. But are not permitted to assemble the components
    You have to have Expanding Ammunition on your FAC to buy an Expanding Bullet or be in posession.

    Hope that helps

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    I found I could have done with upping my allowance - I can only buy one box of expanding at a time then I have to use most of them before I can start experimenting with another type of bullet

    Request an increase if you are reloading. The ACPO guidelines specifically recognise the needs of a reloader.
