Absolutely correct Rosco. That's why many ammo manufacturers are changing to lead-free primer compounds. I believe Winchester was the first. Some may have already noticed that the new Winchester .45 ACP brass has a noticeably larger flash hole. This is to accomodate the slightly different ignition characteristics of the new lead-free primer.On 2001-04-20 14:42, Rosco Benson wrote:
Besides, in actual SHOOTING, the PRIMERS are putting more lead into the atmosphere than are the bullets.
