Abstract:

Air Force small arms firing ranges began using lead free frangible ammunition in the early 2000s due to environmental and health concerns related to the use of lead ammunition. In spite of this step, range instructors continue to report respiratory symptoms. However, exposure assessments routinely detect chemicals and particulate matter PM in amounts much lower than their respective occupational exposure limits.
