Well, I'm shooting factory Black Hills BLUE box, 36 gr grenades in my 223 bolt gun & Federal Premium 43gr TNT in my mini. Can't say they shoot "good", but will do for the buzzard zone. I normally shoot handloads, but for the buzzard zone the factory ammo will do. Frank

I don't think there are any non-lead .17HMR products out there. Maybe someday....

D-Man's right...there's lots of discussion on 223 no lead.I'm using 50gr Varmint Grenades in an AR-15 with 24" bbl 1:9 twist and getting very good accuracy results. Haven't tried anything else yet.
