Re: Wyoming changes caliber laws !!

When they say that the cartridge must be two inches long, do they mean the cartridge or the casing?

The senate killed it. They are pulling Obama tactics out and saying they killed it because the gun lobby was threating them and some emails of death threats. Law enforcement says nothing was given to them as far as death threats.

In reality Gov Mead had already hinted at a veto his lap dogs sat on the bill in the senate till it expired.

Last elk hunt I was in the thick stuff and a long shot would have been 60 yards so I said next time I will use my lever action. Guess I would be in violation in WY so back to the 338.

For all big and trophy game species, legal firearms also include any cartridge of at least .35 caliber and at least 1.5 inches in overall length, or a cartridge that generally delivers 500 foot-pounds of impact at 100 yards.

"centerfire firearm of at least .22 caliber, using a cartridge at least two inches long"


That tells me it's the total length of the round, bullet included.

Ya, that's the way I read it
A 357 may with a 158 gr hard cast out of a lever carbine works well.
