    I think they further said that the lead would degrade and contaminate the water as well. I was a kid when that was changed, but remember the hunters bitching about the switch to steel shot because of the cost and the fact that it wasn't as effective. It was a pretty stupid ruling.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Hey, I think most gun owners are willing to compromise if there are good reasons (for example non-toxic shot for waterfowl). However, there have to be good reasons. Why do you think we should not be allowed to shoot lead rifle bullets? I can't think of any good reason. You have to make it worth it to the people who own guns. By and large gun owners are responsible and reasonable people and if there are good reasons they will listen.

    Let's see. steal bullet fired from .357 mag. Completely penetrates chest of home invader and kills 3 adults and one child after penetrating completely through 5 houses, home invader suffers major wound and kills home owner before he dies.

    Lead bullet fired from .357 Mag. Stops in chest of home invader and knocks him on his ass 10 ft from where he was standing, dead at impact.

    Which bullet do you think is better?

    Actually the NRA commended the EPA on its decision to not entertain the petition.

    Copper is better than either steel or lead. Allow me to spread a little enlightenment.

    Alternatives to Lead Bullets

    Where's your right to cheap toxic ammo?

    Better at what aspect of bullet performance?

    and

    Why is it bad if the inside of the bullet is toxic?

    I would hope there would be better alternatives than a steel bullet, because one shot and you would have a smoothbore musket.

    It isn't regulation. This didn't even get past the petition stage. Also, you seem to have completely misunderstood my post.
