That is a semi concern on my quail lease,,,, hence we encourage double barrel 20 ga instead of 5 shot 12 ga. guns. Probably this year we will ban the 5 shot 12 ga.

one of the reasons Hevishot is so popular in small calibers

It will probably be cheaper to shoot lead and pay the fine if you ever get caught.

I like Bizmuth for non tox. I load it myself to save a little and I feel better shooting it through my twice barrels. Nothing smacks down like lead though
