<div align='left'>NON-LEAD AMMUNITION AVAILABILITY:[/b]

With the lead ammunition ban throughout condor range going into affect July 1, deer and hog hunters need to start finding or loading alternative copper-bullet ammunition and make sure their firearms are sighted in. While major ammunition makers, most notably Federal and Winchester, have non-lead ammunition for most of the major cartridges, there are many popular calibers not currently loaded by the big companies, including the .30-30.

Hunters who shoot some of these cartridges not currently loaded by the bigger companies do have an alternative other than handloading or buying a new firearm. There are number of custom loading companies that will load specialty ammunition. Costs are usually cost $60 to $70 a box (of 20 cartridges) loaded with Barnes Triple Shock X Bullets, or about 15 to 20 percent more than factory-loaded premium ammunition.

You can get more information on factory ammunition currently available and a list of custom loaders at our special non-lead web page on our web site at: http://www.outdoornewsservice.com/non-leadspecial.html.

You raise a very good point. That would be a very good practice. Legislation is passed to achieve particular results. If the results are not realized, why shouldn't the legislation be repealed? I agree wholeheartedly!
