In NM, it has finally gone down to .223 for mulies. .22 or larger for center fire. Technically that means .25 ACP, but before the .32 ACP was just fine, so there is still a common sense requirement. For years and years, the only reason to hunt with a .223 here was for varmints. No rifles for turkey and no center fire squirrels or small birds. However, since I can remember, smallest shotgun allowed is a 28 gauge with a single slug. No buckshot. I guess they want a clean miss. Game legislation will always change, and not always toward something that makes more sense. Given that it's freeing up your choices, I'd be extremely happy with that change. I know a .22 hornet is too small for a muley, but I don't need the game dept. to tell me that.
