What is your personal opinion in this case jaegermeister?
The government is full of Green Party members. Thus, I believe the law is to protect nature. I do not agree that lead free ammo is destroying the environment, nor is it concentrated enough in shot game to be dangerous to humans. I reload my lead free ammo, but have seen no changes in accuracy. Lead free is way more expensive though. This Roe deer was shot with a lead free 130 grain Barnes X bullet in .308. Look at the size of the entrance.

This Roe deer was shot with a Sellier and Bellot 180 grain SP lead bullet. Notice the size of this entrance wound.

There is a diffenrenze yes but the first shot picture was in the soft underbelly(bauch, unterbauch). the second shot was in more Muscel meat. But i still agree with you. there have to be Shoting test with gun soap somewhere in the net.
When i have bt more time i trie to find it.

I have good luck with the 12 ga Winchester XP3 slug. It is lead free with a tin core. It is a 300 gr sabot that has a velocity of 2,000 fps from a 3" shell. If you are getting close to the deer it is awesome.

If I had chose to shoot this doe I would have shot her in the neck with a sabot.

The lead trick goes back many years. Lawyers got many criminals off with the lead excuse. If you were reared in a poor tenement house and killed some one in a robbery it was not your fault. Your mind was warped from eating lead based paint from windows in your deprived bedroom as a child.
Lead is cheaper than gold but has made a fortune for lawyers.

The only way that lead is harmful is if you eat it. I have seen all kinds of weird stuff, but I have never seen anyone roaming the woods looking to eat bullets.
