No doubt about it, Wide Flat Nose lead projectiles have been proven in the field. They fly well, hit hard, track straight, and penetrate deeply. What is not to like? Oh yeah, lead. The following is a Case Study from Lynne Peeples 1/30/2017. The CDC has warned that there is no safe level of lead in the blood of children. And, as in animals, the effects of lead on people may range from subtle to severe. Exposure even under the current CDC reference level of 5 micrograms per deciliter, studies say, may leave a developing child a little slower to learn, a little shorter of attention, a little less successful on tests and at work, and a little more likely to engage in criminal activity. (Recent reports suggest the agency is now considering further lowering this threshold to 3.5 micrograms per deciliter.) Evidence is also emerging of lead’s role in reproductive disorders, kidney disease, cognitive decline and neurological problems. Adults are also far from immune to lead and its health effects. Studies hint that chronic blood lead levels as low as 2 micrograms per deciliter may increase the risk of death from a heart attack or stroke. Evidence is also emerging of lead’s role in reproductive disorders, kidney disease, cognitive decline and neurological problems. Lead is damaging, in part, because it mimics the calcium essential in maintaining healthy bones, nerve cells and blood pressure. More than 90 percent of lead in adults is stored in bones, where the metal’s trickery has helped it claim spots generally reserved for calcium. And that squatting lead is prone to leaching out at inopportune times. It can, for example, take the same ride into the womb as the calcium naturally released from a pregnant woman’s bones to nourish her growing fetus. In addition to potential exposure from eating contaminated meat, workers and customers at a shooting range may inhale, ingest or absorb lead while loading ammunition, shooting, retrieving spent bullets and cleaning guns. The U.S. is home to more than 2,500 ranges and, every year, at least 20 million Americans participate in recreational shooting, according to the NSSF. Reports suggest the figure is increasing, with shooting growing in popularity among women and children. At Lehigh Defense, we are uncompromising in protecting our employees, children, customers, and environment. We have the desire and technology to create innovative projectiles without the use of lead cores. Our solid copper WFN line has terminal performance exceeding that of any lead WFN. Lehigh’s WFN line has a tensile strength of over 15 times greater than lead WFN’s which leads to extremely low projectile deformation allowing significantly improved performance. Folks, we do not need lead in our sport.
