If I'm not mistaken, using FMJ bullets for deer hunting is illegal in Texas, right?
Copper tipped is not quite the same as FMJ. Yup, you're absolutely correct that FMJ is illegal. I wouldn't be using the ammo if I thought I'd end up in jail for using it.
But for now, I have plenty of other "toys" to be playing with.
Do know one thing for certain though, if it's down to the last weekend of the season and the freezer is still empty -- the Mosin is coming out 'cause I know for certain that it will put something in it.
