Lead is likely to cause cancer, damage to the central nervous system, blood, kidneys, affect fertility and endanger the unborn child. Breast milk can also be contaminated.

When munitions are ignited, small amounts of particles are generated which can be mildly irritating to the eyes and respiratory tract. The particles may contain traces of copper, zinc and lead. Processes that produce dust, fumes, or fumes can result in sufficient lead intake into the body to be harmful. When shooting indoors, good ventilation is required to direct gases forward and away from the shooter.

Keep ammunition out of the reach of children. Keep away from heat, sparks, open flames and hot surfaces. Do not grind, bump or rub. Store in the original packaging. Dismantling is prohibited.
