is there any truth in the rumours that DOC are unable to purchase ammunition for the proposed cull because no-one in the industry will supply them?

I don't know if those rumours are true, but I think it is also quite likely that no-one could supply the quantity of non-lead ammunition they wanted by this weekend when the cull was supposed to start. Non-toxic projectiles for reloading are easy to get in small quantities, but I wouldn't imagine there would be large stocks of non-toxic loaded ammunition in the country.

Yes.
But I donít know if doc has been able to source ammo elsewhere.
