    When I was checked in the NE last season the federal warden had a box that the front part of the shell was inserted into and a light showed if the shell was or was not lead.

    I have only been checked one time in the last twenty years. The warden and I had a discussion and that was it.

    They will either stick a magnet or use to hot shot.

    Yes and the Hot Shot showed my Winchester supreme HD tungsten as lead. In took 1/2 hour to clear that up with a warden and put some what off a damper on a good day.

    Reloading Waterfowl loads is a labor of love to have the best ammo in the marsh , I chose to because I like shooting different gauges of guns .
    There're so many options a reloader has if he pays attention to the recipes that are offered but make no mistake about it , if you screw-up it could
    cost you dearly ! Cost wise reloading is cheaper than most factory ammo and with the New Laws coming , it most definitely will be . All the added
    charges this state is imposing in the supply chain , cost money , so beware !
    I stopped by WalMart today in my area , they have removed all ammo from the open shelves and put a sign on the locked cabinet , it says ......
    NO ammo Sales until this State provides the permits to do so ! I talked to the Sporting Goods manager and he said , they have employees who have
    cleared the states requirements but still haven't received the permits , as of yet !

    Our State Bureaucracy Sucks !!!

    I was checked last year we steel reloads he felt them no issue. Hevi shot being heavier it wouldn’t be as easy. I reloaded four boxes yesterday.
