I haven't read the regs lately but I don't think you are limited to a Ca approved ammo. I think the reg speaks to the max amount of lead allowable. So there for I would think that any 100% copper bullet would be fine. I don't believe the regs speak to primer either.
Just remember fellows, not just any "lead free" bullets can be used in the condor zones. If I read it correctly, you can only use lead free bullets that were approved by the State and DFG. I just got my Cabela's Shooting Catalog and Cor-Bon makes .223 53gr TSX "lead free" bullets for $30.99 a box.

Well being certified by the state is insurance for sure but the reg says that any projectile containing more than 1% lead by weight is illegal.So there is nothing about the primer (which makes sense cause the concern is lead left in carrion). If a bullet is 100% copper even thought it hasn't yet been certified by the state it still passes muster. You just may have to proove it.
I don't know about just any supposed non lead ammo. They have a link to certified ammo.http://www.dfg.ca.go...tifiedammo.html

Hey John - I just checked that list (for the first time in many months). They've got just about everthing now to choose from - even .204 ! I also found 22lr and a couple of choices for 40s&w, 223 and 308 - that almost meets all my needsNow if someone could load a .17hmrThings have improved since the ban first hit.
That's why I think it's best to stick with what the state says is acceptable. Just my .
