Thread: Asking for .308 to .308/7.62/.30calibre

    Asking for .308 to .308/7.62/.30calibre

    Like the title says, I'm going to ask for all references to .308 to read .308/7.62/.30calibre. One of the armourers at Bisley was getting sniffy about selling 7.62 to peole with .308 on their cert.

    Also asking for more guns and boolits and I haven't fixed on a .308 or a 7.62 Envoy or Enforcer. or even a T4.

    Good idea,
    was advised when applying for mine to put it down as a .308/7.62 and it's written as such on my fac.

    I have 308 and 7.62 shown separate on my FAC. The 308 is cleared for deer but the 7.62 is only cleared for range use. I can't buy expanding heads for the 7.62. How mad is that?

    Who needs an expanding head and why would you need more than one if you did?

    In the great scheme of things it really is perfectly sane.

    You are permitted to buy S5 bullets which will fit the 7.62 (assuming it is a 7.62x51NATO), but arguably you are not allowed to use them in the 7.62: and for why? well, because your good reason for owning the 7.62 does not include any purpose for which S5 ammunition if permitted.

    TVP happily list .308/7.62 not sure they would be so happy to add .30 cal as that could include the .30 winmag etc, as to the armourer, take it up with the NRA, although theres not that much difference now in their PPU .308 cost against their GGG 7.62 (when they have it)

    There's something up with your metaphor, surely it rains cats and dogs? Regards JCS
