I renewed my H.R. 218 today and was warned that this legislation applies to firearms ONLY and not to ammo. As example I was told that in New Jersey it's a felony to possess hollow-point ammo and there is NO EXEMPTION to that provision.


Now, since many agencies issue or at least authorize hollow-point ammo that could be a serious problem. Any New Jersey LEO's want to comment on that? Are there any other states with restrictions that would like to chime in so we can be better informed?

This crap about Hollow points is just some more New England Democratic attempts to stop us from carrying. I qualify on Hollow point ammo. I was told that we must carry under HR 218 the ammo that we qualify on. Do we to get the NRA attorneys involved?

I can't argue the politics of it as I'm just interested in the legality. There's a lot of infor that's kind of contradictory and not really clear. Here's some links that may be of some value.

Excellent question. I guess NJ considers HP ammo the same as "dum-dum"? Now if you were describing politicians, "dum-dum" is exceptionally descriptive.

If you remeber many years ago the FBI began doing jell and glass tests on a number of munitions and it was supported by LE,and benevolent orgs.


While they were indeed able to remove some serious munitions from the shelves of local gun rooms they also removed some that really were not all that serious in so far as penetration,further and as important they totaly forgot something IMPACT.


Thus the munitions such as widley .475's,and as well as big boar big game munitions such as the nitro express are still easialy gotten.


But now that the former/retired LEO is a civilian per se he/she can no longer by the carry law aquire certain rounds.


Doesn't make a lot of sense but the Fed is after all a strange group.


I carry.


Godbless, watch your 6

That is just messed up- that legislature is out of control and out of touch with reality. No doubt a drive for "safe" ammunition, just like all the excessive rules for "safe" cars that help put automakers out of business and yet people die everyday in car wrecks. I'd wager that you can also be killed with a FMJ or even a lead RN type of bullet. Did they have hollow points in the Civial War or WWI? Amazing anyone was killed by gunfire in those conflicts. It's a shame the PBA or some such organization can't lobby a reasonable exemption in there for LEOs and retirees.


I'm glad I don't need to go into NJ anytime in the foreseeable future.


Thanks for posting this info.
