California: Hunters’ Guide to Complying with California’s New Lead Ammunition Restrictions

The National Rifle Association (NRA) and its affiliate, the California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA), are now distributing the Hunters’ Guide to Complying With California’s Lead Ammunition Restrictions.  This helpful and important guide serves as a comprehensive resource for hunters who need to know about California’s lead ammunition restrictions.  The guide will aid hunters in navigating California’s complex lead ammunition regulations especially when using traditional lead ammunition for hunting while it remains legal in certain areas for a limited time.

As previously reported, the new law will require the use of non-lead ammunition for all hunting statewide beginning July 1, 2019.  In the years leading up to the total statewide ban, lead ammunition use for hunting will be incrementally restricted in phases.  The guide explains each of the three phases in detail, and will help hunters comply with these patchwork restrictions as they take effect.

The guide’s centerpiece is the Phased Implementation Lead Ban Compliance Table, which can be used as a quick reference to determine whether a particular hunt will require using non-lead ammunition.  Other portions of the guide detail the potential issues arising from using lead ammunition, as well as some of the law’s more subtle nuances that create legal traps for the unwary.     

The NRA and CRPA have made the Guide available to the public free of charge.  We recommend that you always consult the electronic, rather than a printed version of the guide because regulations may change and the guide may be updated.  If you do not see the answer to a question you have or believe there is an error in this guide, please provide feedback to: contact@crpa.org.                             

Help Us Help You

Please help us fight for your right to choose to own a gun for sport, or to defend yourself and your family. The NRA and CRPA work together in California to fight for you, in cities and counties across the state, in regulatory agencies, and in the courts.  Even with the generous rates that our team of civil rights attorneys, legislative advocates, experts and consultants grant us, these ongoing efforts are still expensive. You can support our pro-Second Amendment efforts in California by donating to the NRA Legal Action Project.  All donations will be spent to specifically benefit California gun owners.

Second Amendment supporters should be careful about supporting litigation or other efforts promised by individuals and groups that lack the experience, resources, skill, or legal talent to be successful.  The NRA and CRPA’s national team of highly regarded civil rights attorneys, legislative advocates, and scholars has the experience, resources, skill and expertise needed to maximize the potential for victory in California’s often hostile political environments.
