I can not confirm but I heard today that there was a lead bullet ban on Federal lands tucked away in the inflation reduction bill. Anyone hear this?

Hope not, that would mean no patched round ball in the national forests.

And no target shooting with any lead ammo on and fed lands. This isn't just about hunting.

So what? That makes banning all other lead projectiles and fishing tackle okay?

Sorry, I'm just fed up with all the govt crap. Its just more moronic legislation designed solely to crush consumptive users of natural resources and firearms ownership

Do you have a source for that? Pretty sure Obama banned them, then Trump's guy unbanned them.

Who cares? Who's going to enforce it? Civil Disobedience.

More than likely a federal conservation officer will be handing out the tickets

If so the ammo companies will follow suit as won't be profitable not to.

Many people are short sighted and don't see that.

Not too short sighted to see the boot heel of government oppression. How much are you willing to pay for chinesium alloy 22 cartridges? Availability will tighten further and costs will skyrocket.

That could be a game changer for hunting on NF and BLM in western states for sure if it applies

Hunting, shooting (including target) and fishing. Complete lead ban. Projectiles, weights, etc.
