Indiana Rifle Season?
 
I have recently heard through a rumor that Indiana could have a rifleseason within the next five years. Has anyone else heard of this and do you think it is a good idea. I don't think it is at least not right now anyway.

I think it would be great, driving to Indianappolis, I saw lots of open corn fields, and it was plenty of room to shoot a rifle, IMO.

Who said it was shot down? Last I looked, and I've been following this one since the initial proposal stage, it was still on the table. The sticking point, as TROPHYHUNTER25 mentioned, was the cartridge. That has pretty much been settled and the bill is now up for final consideration with the NRC. You can find the real scoop here: IDNR website

I hope that is does not happen. We finally getting big bucks in my area from the one buck rule. Everybody that I know around hereare being patient and letting little deer go by. Where I hunt from your farthest shot is only 100 yardsat the max. There is no need for a high powered rifle.

The calibers being considered for PCR are already legal in pistols, as are many that were not considered for PCR due to their higher velocities. The rifles/cartridges under consideration are all also low velocity, similar in range to currently allowed slug guns and muzzleloaders, not cannons like some would have you believe. You're unlikely to even see a "cowboy gun" once the rule gets approved unless you're the one carrying it.

in my opinion it should be legal. i hunt with a sigle shot .308 pistol. thats legal and alot more power than a hhandgun cartridge.

i would rather it not. dont get me wrong..i have nothing against huntign with a rifle. i've killed several animals with a rifle. i just dont think there is any reason to have it..

There is nothing wrong with having these PCRs allowed. It may even get a few hunters out there who would otherwise not be out there. If the cartridges are already allowed for the handguns, why not put them in a long gun and have at it. It is just going to allow more opportunity for other hunters to get out there in the woods and do what we all love to do.
Like Kevin1 said I don't think you will really see too many of these weapons out in the woods anyways.

Here's the link that I PM'd you about. I got on that web site and couldn't find the article.
Thanks!

Thanks,
That cleared a lot up for me.
I'm curious as to why the 460 S&W wasn't mentioned.

I guess we'll have to wait until May 22 to see!

RE: Indiana Rifle Season?
 
I just looked up the 460 S&W and it's case length is to long.
The article says no case length over 1.625" and the 460 is 1.8"
I guess that's why it wasn't mentioned!

Wonder how many people are already testing 38/500 loads?

Jack, can you shed some light on what that is?

What would a 500 S&W be if it were necked down to a 357 and a maximum case length of 1.6?
