This was a step forward for those of us Indiana that were tired of being limited to shotguns and later highly restricted rifle calibers. It had been a long struggle to get that far, taking at least 5 years of constant pressure to get our regulations opened up to use even highly restricted rifle calibers and another almost 10 years to open it up even more. Now, one year after passing the law allowing rifles in .243 and .308 calibers the law was expanded to include any caliber/cartridge that falls between the minimum and maximum. Even that wasn't without bumps and mistakes along the way, which will happen when the legislature has to step in and do what the DNR will not. It is still not perfect, and there are still plenty of people, in the legislature, the DNR, and unfortunately even in the woods that cling to tired and disproven arguments against uaing rifles but it is a hell of a lot better than being restricted to shotguns and muzzleloaders.
