    Just an FYI... further documenting the industry's support for lead ammunition... from the NSSF...

    Victory in Fight to Preserve Traditional Ammunition

    Efforts to protect the rights of sportsmen and gun owners to use the ammunition of their choice received a significant boost last week when a federal judge dismissed part of a Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) lawsuit. The CBD suit challenged the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) denial of a petition to ban traditional ammunition and lead fishing tackle under the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976 (TSCA). The court ruled it does not have jurisdiction over EPA's refusal to regulate traditional ammunition because the complaint was not filed within the statute of limitations to challenge the EPA decision. The ruling does not apply to the lead fishing gear portion of the petition.

    "This is a great victory for industry," said NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel Lawrence G. Keane. "Still, the legal, regulatory and legislative threats against traditional ammunition remain very real. This is why it is imperative that all sportsmen urge their senators and representatives to support the Hunting, Fishing and Recreational Shooting Sports Protection Act."

    Best regards,

    Jay
