HUGE victory for keeping lead

Those CIP "standard" steel load guidelines also restrict shot sizes to nothing larger than US 5.

Writing from California, where all this mess started I have some startling facts.

RI, tell us how much you like copper when you put the sneak on a nice buck, you place a perfect shot, and then since it was only a quick laser hole thru it, it runs away and you don't find it.  Tell us how you like it.

Banning lead isn't about condors, that has been proven.  It is a bird that is extinct.  Pretend all they want but a bird that has to be fed and has monthly physical check-ups, isn't a wild bird.

When we have a Governor who signs into law the lead ban WITHOUT reading the legislative digest required to have enough knowledge to sign the bill-that's illegal.  When the same governor re-appoints a known epitomy of 'conflict of interest' back at the head of DFW-that's illegal to the people of the State.

I don't care about wind farms.

The point is, it happens consistently with copper.  Consistently.

Interesting. Ive seen exactly the opposite experience with the group of guys I hunt with who all switched to Barnes stuff. And not for environmental reasons, but rather because they all feel it outperforms cup and core lead
