i was printing off my application fron the illinois dnr and noticed the word centerfire. took a closer look and it looks like centerfire handguns are legal as long as they are over 30 cal. is this new? i have killed out with my savage smokeless the past two years, but an a tc contender in 30-30 or 35 rem might be coming with me this yr.

And that will eliminate 99.9% of centerfire pistol cartridges

not if they are straight walled. very few centerfire pistol cartridges are bottlenecked.
