Whether by state or federal regulation, or by market forces, lead bullets will be all but phased out within a few years in favor of so-called green bullets, experts say. While many believe that this will help the environment by keeping lead from contaminating groundwater, others say switching to copper-based bullets will cost hunters and sportsmen more and have little effect on the environment.Yeah, right. They're not taking into account the hundreds of thousands of us who cast our own bullets from lead scrap. I'm not likely to stop that any time soon. I've heard good things about the all-copper bullets from places like Barnes and Nosler, but I don't have any intention to stop using lead bullets. If it's plumbous, I'm apt to make bullets from it.
