    If you think "lead sucks" then I'll assume you've not done much hunting or shooting. Lead shot has been standard since men started shooting shotguns at game animals. I've never heard of anybody getting sick from using it or eating game that had been shot with it either.

    Lead also still remains the most effective type of shot. All the other stuff pales in comparison, particularly steel. And if you're doing any clay target shooting I don't think you're going to want to pay for non-toxic shotshells, they're more expensive than lead for the most part.
