Looks like you can use hollow points for legal hunting too, although I think they would be usually be called “soft points. “ Hollow point bullets for rifles are often match grade bullets used for competitive target shooting, but don’t really expand. It’s clear that the people that wrote this law didn’t know very much about ammunition or ballistics.
AFAIK there’s no hunting with rifles in NJ - only shotguns, or, during primitive weapons season, muzzle-loaders. Bow hunting is very, very big, too.
Soft points don't have "hollow points" (the hole in the end) so even though you think they are the same, they are not.
Its clear that the people that wrote this law didnt know very much about ammunition or ballistics.
Lot of that going around...
“the people that wrote this law didnt know very much”
That in itself... pretty much covers it.
The ones that wrote this law don’t care to know anything about ammunition or ballistics. They are only interested in controlling their slaves. The purpose of this law and others like it is to make felons of as many of the sheep as possible. And the sheep said,”Baaa.”
