TO question

I wear a mask (when I remember) when TOing because I believe that a lot of the lead in my blood came from breathing while running the timer. I rarely breathe while shooting so not an issue.

 

The pandemic is just an extra bonus for mask wearers and other assorted Outlaws.

A cloth or paper mask does little or nothing when trying to filter lead fumes. You need a respirator for that!

LOL.  No, I would have a heart attack, then suggest she see a psychiatrist, since clearly a pod person has taken over her body.

Not trying to filter lead fumes.

GSR is dust.

 

I am not a physician or anybody that's real smart. If I was I probably wouldn't be casting bullets for money.

I've done a fair amount of research and a recurring theme seems to point to a couple of things I can do better at the shop and TOing.

So I've decided to wear a mask while TOing to help me from breathing gun shot residue due to lead in primers.

Gunshot residue is not dust. The lead stibnite is an explosive and it generates lead fumes.
