Game board considers military ammo ban

SITKA, ALASKA Using military-style ammunition to hunt big game will no longer be legal in Alaska, following action expected this spring by the state board of game.
At its meeting last November, the board amended a proposal to ban .223 full metal jacket bullets in Southeast Alaska to include the entire state. Extending the prohibition to include all calibers of full metal jacket bullets remains on the table for the board’s spring meeting.
