    My FEO says "justify your request" when I ask for a variation
    My reason for wanting the 243 was for fox and Roe
    My variation was granted even though I already held a 308

    easy.

    you have a .223 for fox
    you would like a round that is roe specific, fast and flat and can deliver larger bullets than the .223 but not as big as the .308 can
    for "humane" reasons
    mention that you had a runner with the .223....

    Other than "I want one" I cannot think of any justification to own a 243. Kind of like justifying a 505 Jeffery.

    Sorry, is that a .500 Jeffery you mean? Or the .505 Gibbs?
