Hello
Has anyone heard anything about the April 10 Dept Fish And Game Commision meeting?? I believe the 22 Cal Long rifle was being discussed

all that was discussed was the "non-lead certification process" that makes ammo/bullets/projectiles legal beginning July 1 with the new law. An application form is already on the web, and we already have applications from nosler, winchester, and remington I believe as 3 of the larger companies.

HERE IS WHERE YOU CAN FIND THE FORM

Thanks for the update, Eric.

No further discussion about Rimfires?

per the video, there are the 3 applications submitted for certification that the ammo is certified "non-lead" as WildlifeBranch mentioned. There is also a 4th application being submitted right now from a custom cartridge mfg'er. Barnes, Federal, nor Weatherby have submitted applications per Sonke Mastrup.

An NRA rep (Ed Worley) asked the commission and staff about any rimfire submissions for the above certification. Commissioner Rogers answered - "not yet"

While on the non-lead subject, Rogers mentioned the problem that the midwest food shelters had with lead in venison and that it's not a condor issue, but a human health issue.

You can bet they're (anti-lead folks) gonna start leveraging this one before the research is done. There are about four states right now who've pulled hunter-donated venison off the food bank shelves, although Iowa put it back after some consideration. Every one of them admits that there's no evidence or solid research demonstrating the health risks, yet you watch... the panic will spread.

Thing is, maybe they're right. Not that ALL hunter killed venison is dangerous, but that some could be. It's worth knowing the facts before we discount this outright.
