Proposal to allow Straight Wall Pistol Cartridges

DNR proposed changes to allow straight wall pistol cartridges in previous SG only counties, for deer. Anyone have additional information on these changes? I saw what was on DNR comments page. I am looking for the wording of the proposed change?

The comment period closed feb 24 IIRC. We had a thread on it.

What, specifically are you looking for? I dont think that the official reg is out yet.

Was looking for the wording. I guess I'll just have to wait...

Waiting myself. What are you looking to buy.

I haven’t quite made up my mind. Somedays I think 44 mag lever, others 350 Legend in an AR upper, others a 350 bolt action Savage or Ruger. Decisions......

Does allowing straight wall pistol calibers really open up that many options versus allowing straight wall rifle calibers?

10mm, 41 mag, 44 special, and 44 mag are the only four that i can think of off the top of my head

Concur with above, if it is PISTOL then it is really limited (there are few non-straight walled pistol cartridges). Yes, .357 sig, Tok, and a few others but not many aren't straight. Then, you get into the power requirement which will make it tighter still.

350 Legend (), 450 bushmaster...some others including 45-70

But I am mostly looking at 350 legend or 450 bushmaster upper. Since I have a 9mm suppressor that will hold up to 350 legend, I am mostly looking at that.

If they follow the .35 caliber and up; 1.8 inch maximum case length then straight wall rifle calibers like .45-70, .38-55 are out. There are a whole bunch of calibers that qualify .357 Magnum, .44 Mag etc.

I am not buying anything until I am sure there are no limitation on the type of rifle, that's my concern.

I hunt in Harford county. I use a savage 220 shooting Remington Accutips. Not sure I see any benefits to using a 44 magnum, especially when hunting field edges. A new 350 legend though

I use the 220 in QA county but it would be fun to be able to hunt with my lever action 357 again. Haven't been able to do that for a couple years. Last one was in Cecil. There are other pistol calibers that would be legal, 45 LC 50 AE, 454 Casull and 500 S&W

OH and 10MM...I would be legally allowed to hunt deer with my Glock G20 with a 6 inch barrel and Buffalo Bore Heavies..
