Non-Lead Ammunition Zoom Panel Discussion – October 7, 2020 (RECORDING)

This program overviews impacts on human health, impacts on wildlife, comparisons of lead and non-lead bullet fragmentation and technical performance of non-lead ammunition. This discussion is not about regulations or bans or controls, but about the choices that hunters can voluntarily make to lessen the impacts of lead in our environment.
