  1. In relation to the post I was replying to it was a valid point. As you say (and the post I was replying to referred); if it is not listed it is not an obsolete calibre and must be on license, if it is listed as obsolete then the reason you want it (to shoot or to look at) will determine if it needs to go on FAC or not.
  2. Seems logical to me. I think you're missing the fact that if you want it purely "as a curiosity or ornament" then it's exempt from certification, but if you want to shoot it then the FA will apply and you'll need to put it on FAC. I have an original 1853 Volunteer rifle and it's exempt and kept on display in the house. When I wanted to shoot it it went on my FAC and I had to lock it up (not easy with a rifle so long). As soon as I got tired cleaning it I told the FLD that I'd finished shooting it and it was once again an ornament and it came off my FAC.
  3. Quoted from The Antique Firearms Regulations 2021 Cartridges specified under section 58(2B)(b) of the Firearms Act 1968 2. The description of cartridges specified for the purposes of section 58(2B)(b) of the 1968 Act are set out in the Schedule to these Regulations. Schedule can be found at: https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2021/215/schedule/made I think this has the full list but I may be wrong. I believe the 12.7x44 is known by several different names so it could be on the list but I cannot find 12.7x44.
