    Or, a reason for ammo makers to charge more. Plenty of lead around, and a ton can be imported. Never have known this industry to waste an opportunity to charge more.

    That smelter is insignificant in our lead production. Already 94% of our lead comes from our recycling plants, the rest we import. There is no lead shortage.

    We shipped manufacturing over seas to avoid pollution (Not sole reason but one reason) We used grain to make ethanol and raised the price of fuel and food. I am all for a clean environment but can't we look at the cost of a measure prior to implementation?

    How many dupes on this topic are we gonna get before everyone gets smart enough to realize there is no crisis?

    Seriously, folks...apply a little critical thought to what the media is feeding you. They want to keep you scared, because you'll watch more.

    there is no lead shortage, ammo production is catching up with demand.

    public service announcement: SG ammo has tons of .223/5.56 and p mags at near pre-panic prices.

    Since copper has 2/3rds the mass of lead, what will be the new effective range of .223?

    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    What? No lead? Well we can always ship in depleted uranium from Chernobyl. No lead poisoning for the birds and an even denser material for our bullets (tongue in cheek in case any physicists want to debate nuclear weight or something).

    Nothing to see here folks, just move along

    Lead is naturally found in the earth, just how do lead bullets add to something that already came from there?

    From what I have read, very little difference.

    In the ground it does not cause a problem, in our blood stream a bit of a problem, in the blood stream of children big problem. But the reality is that very simple things can protect from bringing that lead home from the range.

    You know if the military stops using lead for bullets, it will mean more for the rest of us not less. also i think it will make the lake city stuff less popular.

    it also means increased muzzle velocity which translates to a flatter trajectory. and since speed is the big player in determining muzzle energy it could actually benefit shot to mid range effectiveness.

    as far as external ballistics at longer ranges testing would be the best method.
