I have an idea. Call your local BATF office. Ask to speak to an IOI officer and ask about copper.
After the guy who tried to falsely shut us down retired a new group of guys have filled the office. They are much better, very professional.
I talk with them often. That is the whole point of an IOI officer. While they can't comment directly they have apologized for anything that was miss handled in the past and
have been very adamant nothing like that would happen under their watch. That said the BATF is a big organization.
Also keep in mind unless you are an FFL or doing FFL stuff they have no legal power over you. This is why you see the FBI always along with the BATF on their raids.
