... a 4.5 ton lead pour for a keel ... how lead interacts with soil was very interesting.

This was reassuring in many ways. I do shoot lead at a Field Target outdoor site in Wisconsin. I'll worry less about that having seen this video.
Paulus, nice insight, thank you!
quote author=Insanity link=topic=153690.msg155692800#msg155692800 date=1548127859]Our direct contact to pellets is mitigated buy a graphite coating. Lead still harmful but that discoloration on your fingers is mostly graphite ya some lead dust is created in a tin but I am not sure how easily it is absorbed into the bloodstream.
Now I ask ya, who doesn't love a beautiful nerd.
I will have to look up that post and read it. We could have lead dust issues after the pellet is shot but a lot of air guns seem to employ a moderator or LDC. How much dust is created is at question. Then you can determine say my attic range where I shoot currently 100 or so rounds then I am done. I may have more harmful exposure to the insulation than the lead. From what I understand in my case the insulation will stay in my lungs but the lead will make it to my brain and it could take a million pellets shot in my attic range to get any effect but after 100 hours I could have respiratory issues from inhaling fiberglass.
