15. Only shotgun hunters going for birds typically use non-lead ammo

And that's largely because lead ammo is illegal to use for waterfowl, given the propensity of ducks to eat lead shot from lake bottoms thinking it's grit.

Very few deer, bear, elk, or small game hunters use steel or copper ammo, as lead-based ammo is still readily available, cheap, and reliably lethal. I'd say 90% of all the non-shotgun ammo on the shelves in the large hunting stores around here is still lead.
