Alternative copper ammo for hunting

Batcheller’s conclusion? “For me, solid non-lead ammo is the right choice. It performs exceptionally well in my shotgun and rifle, it has excellent ballistic properties, and it’s deadly on deer. By using this ammo instead of lead, I get more clean venison for my family, and I’m doing the right thing for wildlife conservation.”

[Note: DEC’s website provides information on the technical properties of non-lead ammunition and lists products made by several major manufacturers to help hunters find what they need for their firearms.]
