    Our club is interested in promoting youth shooting. We are looking for .22 pistol and rifle ammo that has minimal lead exposure. Can anyone help to identify .22 long rifle ammo that has lead-free primers and encapsulated lead bullets for our 4-H shooting program. In the Winter, we will be shooting in an indoor range at 50 foot targets. Thanks... Jim Schmidt

    22 Ammo does not have a primer but a primer mix .

    As far as the bullets are concerned they all are coated with a wax lube or copper plated which limits exposure. I am not aware of any lead free 22 primers. Shooting on an indoor range with a good ventilaion system will help. HMB

    EE; not pot stirring but those air rifles shoot those nasty lead pellets. (Which if handled with a little common sense are perfectly safe as are the .22's)

    EE; they must be very dangerous to Condors, because here in Kookyfornia, you can't use .22's to shoot ground squirrels anymore.
