What type of shotshells do you have to use for hunting in the non-lead condor area?
I just bought a 28ga, anyone have a reloader or ammo they want to sell?
The gun is a franchi AL48 28ga, im looking forward to seeing it once its shipped.

Any NON-TOXIC shotshell will qualify.

I guess then, what is the statue, codified, or PC definition of non-toxic? I normally use black cloud for duck so I am clear there but if I go shoot pheasant on a non lead zone would something like the prairie storm copper and nickel coated lead work?

Winchester has a steel shot load. It will be the less expensive of the non-toxic. Ckeck the net for sellers

Steel, Bismuth, Tungsten-iron, tungsten polymner, heavy shot, and black cloud all are listed as "non-toxic" approved.. at least for game animals. Of all those, Bismuth in the 28 might be the least offensive to the barrel but they are all expensive. I don't think steel is available in the 28.. the rest.. not sure.
