I must admit I've only known these existed for a few days. Now that I think about it, it makes sense that it wouldnt be a good thing to put all that lead into the environment. Anyway, we shoot most of what we eat for meat- deer, turkey, sometimes elk, geese. Has anyone ever used a lead-free bullet and can share experiences? Do they sell them in Miles City? I'm willing to pay extra for a bullet that won't pollute so that's not an issue. Now I'm thinking, they banned lead in paint, gasoline, kids toys; but over the years we've gone through thousands of bullets for hunting and target practice, and we havent picked any of them up and thrown them in the trash (how could you!?), meaning they are still in the earth, the lead being released into the groundwater and soil, and I'm feeling guilty.
