This is a discussion on CleanFire ammo? within the Defensive Ammunition & Ballistics forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I'm thinking about buying Blazer CleanFire or Speer Lawman CleanFire ammo. 9mm, 147gr probably. Both TMJ... the 147gr has a flat nose, the 124gr does ...

Most indoor ranges employees and at PDs in Cali must take a lead baseline blood test and be checked on a regular basis. If you're worried about lead poisoning have your doctor do the test and test again after several range trips.

I know someone who used that WinClean stuff and according to him it didn't clean a darn thing. Seriously though, I don't see it being an issue worth addressing. I used to work at a range and the only person who had any problems was a guy who worked a related range, 10 hrs/day, 5 days a week, for at least a decade. He got tested and had to sit out for about 2 mos for his body to flush out the heavy metals. Do you shoot that much? If you shoot around others, who aren't using the same "clean" ammo, it really doesn't matter anyway. - and you still have to clean your gun anyways
