Ammunition Studies

Lead has been studied extensively for over 100 years because of its negative impacts to life on earth. In fact, lead is not essential to any known biological system or cellular process. Conversely, lead causes widespread damage to cells and organs when it is ingested, inhaled, or absorbed in surprisingly small quantities.
