    I agree with Destry. Actually in some circles non-toxic shot is blamed for wounding more waterfowl.
    I get tested for lead not because of what I shoot with it or eat but because of the quantity I handle in reload shot shells, pouring lead head jigs for fishing, etc. If reloaders are not affected from handling it, there is no way the average hunter eating game is going to be bothered. I'm willing to bet that I eat more game than the average causual weekend hunter - but probably not more than Destry!
