Lead Ammunition – HSE Report

Proposals to Ban Lead in Ammunition

HSE has published their report Lead in Ammunition proposing restrictions on the:

  1. use of lead bullets for outdoor target shooting, with a derogation for shooting at licensed ranges with appropriate environmental protection measures;
  2. use of lead bullets for hunting; and
  3. sale and use of lead shot, with a derogation for authorised athletes on licensed ranges.

and launched a 6-month public consultation.


These proposals pose a real threat to the future of target shooting.

We are reviewing the 226 page document and will publish our response to the proposals by 1st July 2022.


It is essential that the target shooting community respond in large numbers to the consultation in a coordinated, measured and rational manner.

Chief Executive of the National Shooting Centre
