I got my blood checked for lead level, mainly due to me reloading 800 bullets or so weekly. And, I'm guessing that Ophelia & I shoot close to 50 matches yearly. I do wear Harbor Freight gloves when reloading & when cleaning guns. And, I use mostly poly coated bullets, which would hopefully lower the risk. My level was "21". The nurse said "this is an acceptable level, but we don't want it to go any higher". I asked her to describe the levels as far as what is too high & so forth, & she said she'd have to check with my doctor & get back to me. I expect her to call sometime this afternoon, but I'm betting some of you smart cowboys already have a good knowledge of this topic. If you don't mind, educate me/us, please. And, how would one go about lowering the level short of cutting back on shooting & reloading?
