Do you wear some type of plastic gloves when reloading with lead cast
bullets? Should we? Is there a danger from handling the lead bullet
heads bare handed?

thanks

No, I don't wear gloves while reloading. I retain my hold on the bullet to guide it into the seating die. Gloves wouldn't give me a sensitive enough feel.

Does that much exposure to lead cause any problems? Not that I'm aware of. And I've at it over fifty years.

I never wear gloves either... I DO however wash my hands on a frequent basis...
That might be a good idea no matter what you are doing... :smt118

DON"T eat or smoke when handling lead until you wash your hands. As for loading using lead bullets just wash up with soap and water when you're done.
