AMMO LEAD bullets vs Copper

I have been hearing a lot from different guys the reason the ammo supply is so short is because the EPA is trying to ban lead bullets and, the manufactures don't want to make a lot they will be stuck with???... makes sense in a way because of the shortage... SO if not lead they are saying solid copper plinking rounds instead of lead... ya that will be a cheap target round ????

Anyone heard anything about this craziness ???

I believe that legislation was passed precluding the EPA from regulating the use of lead slugs in ammo. Could be wrong.

Banning the lead became popular in a animal rights/environazi effort to "save" the condor in CA and has gotten more traction as another back door effort to make shooting so expensive that few will do so. There is nothing so low that the antis won't stoop to in order to achieve their goals. Slimy politics, what else is new? Don

I heard about that some time ago , but never went anywhere and was prevented by legislation as well. If it were to happen though, I guarantee the next shortage would be reloading equipment.
