Alabama laws on ammo (??? ) .. need clarification
Ok... I was going to be going thru Alabama and reading up on their laws and ran into the below law. I wondering if it means, what I think it means.... so, esp any Alabama folks that can clarify ???
I'm reading it that they are referring to the bullet / projectile in this, and not related to the casing at all, and that HP bullets are allowed. However, I can read this 3 or more different ways, so I'm looking for any clarification or how everyone else would read this...... as they refer to "ammunition " only is this, and not "bullet/projectile". It does not seem clear to me.
