Will we see the day when lead bullets are banned entirely in US?
I don't have an issue with mono-metal bullets but prefer lead for the grunt work, and enjoy shooting the inexpensive. And 22 rimfires, what's the future there?
Do you suppose if there were no more traditional lead cup/core type bullets available that the bullet mfg's would tailor the mono-metal bullets to replicate previous designs? What would Winchester and Remington offer in place of PowerPoint and CoreLok for the workin' mans ammo, maybe something like the original Barnes X... I guess we are seeing that already since some varmint bullets are now lead free.
If no lead, would all mono-metal bullets be "premium bullets"?
My wife says I don't like change, so you guys need to re-assure me that all will be well in the bullet world if we are made lead free in the future!
All the choices and selection of non-premium bullets we have now make handloading and shooting so fun and intersting plus not costing an arm and a leg. Tell me we won't lose that.... Something to think about...
