Are the days of the lead and copper bullets going by the wayside?
I have used, with great success, the Barnes X all copper bullets in my rifles, both .308 and 7mm-08 - they have proven devastating on the deer here in the south.
I understand that bullet placement is the key component - far more so than bullet construction - where a Core-Lokt (nothing against them, used them for years) that is properly placed is infinitely more efective than a poorly placed copper bullet.
I see a surge in the "all copper bullets" and I see some upside to them - they are touted as being very effective and I also read there are some lead concerns when you eat a deer (or whatever) that was shot with a typical lead / copper jacket bullet.
I also read that all copper bullets may not be as accurate as a standard bullet - at least in some guns.
Are we seeing the end of the line for lead jacket bullets in centerfire rifles?
I am not a bird hunter but I think that the conversion away from lead shot is pretty much complete in some areas - isn't it?
What do the BGH experts say?
