Something New from Winchester? Tin bullets.

Post by Dinochrome One » Fri Jun 20, 2014 2:50 am

One of the boxes of .22LR I bought along with the 50th-Anniversary 10-22 contains 26 Gr. Hollow-Point Tin bullets. The box is also marked, "Lead-Free Projectiles". I've seen solid copper bullets in 9X19MM, but never anything but lead in .22.

A new trend?

Just a work-around, since the greenies are now going after lead.
There must be an end to this intimidation by those who come to this great country, but reject its culture.
