I went to bass pro today and they had some Winchester lead free .22 lr. Anybody try them yet ?
At $10.25 for 50 rounds I had to pass on them but was curious how well they perform. Are they safe for the bore ?
Kinda skeered to see what will happen to center fire ammo if they have to manufacture lead free bullets for them too.
I'm afraid "they" might've figured out a way to out price most from the shooting sport if this is a sign of things to come.

The tree huggers are afraid shooters are putting to much Lead into the ground. Do you think they know we dug it up from there to begin with:questionmark::shot:

Apparently they are some type of tin alloy mix. Winchester is claiming high accuracy along with stating they are good for varmint, small game, target and plinking use.

I've seen the CCI "green rounds". 21 grains and they wanted 7.99 for a box of 50. When I looked at them and saw they weren't Stingers I handed them back to the counter guy.

I have no problem with green ammunition as long as it is cheaper and it does not wear out my barrel. But since it is more expensive, I will pass.

I tried some 'green' lead free .22LR while I lived in CA. Results were very disappointing to say the least. Box stated short range, as in 25yds max. Accuracy was bad enough at that range. Longer and it got progressively crappier.

I don't recommend them. At all.
