That was tried before by "environmentalists" and rejected by the EPA.

Lead shot for most bird hunting was banned in Maine 25-30 years ago, because it was killing the birds who ate it long after hunting season was over. It was banned by the Fish & Wildlife Service, which directly and indirectly promotes hunting, not by environmentalists. Haven't seen any attempts to ban lead in any other ammunition -- apparently deer and bear and bunny rabbits do not favor spent bullets in their diets.
