Had my annual physical two weeks ago, got my lab work back today. Have my lead levels checked every two years, but don't mention to my MD about my shooting/casting. I simply say I've dealt with lead in my profession...
Anyway, lead level is at 2 micrograms/Deciliter, down from 4 two years ago. I guess not chewing bullets helps! I do hope you other casters check your from time to time.

This is a pretty good idea. I thought about it decades ago and was always going to do it.I always seem to forget. Back in the day I shot sooo many. Lead bullets and we lived on so many rivers,lakes, streams we fasted our own sinkers,split shots, and just about anything else. Probaly was cheaper to buy them in the end but it was part of a tradition.. We would all get together and have a cast day. Bullets,split shots,sinkers and parts of fish lures. I have to go this week for a ton of blood work.I think I'm gonna talk to the doctor and have him check my lead levels. Thanks charley good idea and a reminder..
