State Starts Phasing in Non-Lead Ammo for Hunting


Starting July 1 in California, hunters in state wildlife preserves and ecological areas must use non-lead ammunition, which will also be required when hunting Nelson bighorn sheep anywhere in the state. Phase 2 of the phase-out of lead ammo begins next year, when non-lead shotgun shot will be required for hunters of most game birds and mammals. Starting on July 1, 2019, non-lead ammunition will be required when taking any wildlife with a firearm anywhere in California.
