Pistol Committee suspends Distinguished Revolver “Factory” ammunition requirement for 2009 National Championships Distinguished Revolver Match.

Due to the lack of availability of commercially manufactured 158 grain round nose or semi-wadcutter .38 special cartridges, the NRA Pistol Committee has agreed to suspend Rule 3.1.4(e). Ammunition - New, factory manufactured ammunition or commercially re-manufactured ammunition: .38 Special 158 grain round nose lead bullet or .38 Special 158 grain lead semi-wadcutter only.

The only suspension to the rule is that the ammo need NOT be factory manufactured or re-manufactured. Individuals may hand load .38 Special 158 grain round nose lead bullet or .38 Special 158 grain lead semi-wadcutter only. No hollow points will be allowed at this time.

The suspension of Rule 3.1.4(e) will only pertain to the Distinguished Revolver Match At the NRA National Pistol Championships at Camp Perry this year. Regional and State Championships that conduct DR Matches will be required to follow the rule. The Pistol Committee will look into a possible permanent change or amendment to the Rule at the Committee meeting to be held this fall.

Any questions or comments should be directed to Brian Zins, National Manager of Pistol Programs NRA Competitive Shooting Division at bzins@nrahq.org or 703.267.1451.
