Lead-free is just another hurdle to jump through. The rounds cost significantly more and are harder to find; even in a lead-free hunting state like California where you would think the local shops would stock up on the stuff. We can’t even order it online unless you ship it to an FFL which brings the price even higher. If you’re outside of California I’d recommend fighting like hell to block any lead-free legislation. My opinion is that it should be a personal choice of each hunter to chose what ammunition works best for them to humanely dispatch their target species.
