Reminds me of the Demise of Small Calibers thread we've had go around a few times.
Here I am with a pristine S&W 16-4 that I bought to have a little more oomph than a 22lr and now the rules went and changed. Probably changed a few years ago and I didn't notice. That 32 mag down loaded was going to be my easy on the ears answer to shooting squirrels with a hand gun. This also rules out the 30-30 and a reduced load.
Arms & Ammunition: 1) Manually operated and autoloading shotguns with a
capacity of no more than 3 shells in the chamber and magazine combined; 2)
Manually operated rifles and handguns less than 23 caliber; 3) Muzzleloading
rifles and handguns 40 caliber or less and shotguns; and 4) long, recurve and
compound bows and arrows. Single-projectile ammunition, or fine shot pellets no
larger than No.4 lead, bismuth-tin, or tungsten-iron, or No. 2 steel. Note: Rifle and
handgun caliber restrictions do not apply when hunting woodchucks. While hunting
small game during the bear or muzzleloader deer seasons, the only rifle or
handgun that can be used is a 22 caliber or less rimfire.
