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.

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
