Default Hopefully not all States will go lead-free

I understand the reasoning behind lead-free for waterfowl hunting, but I have a larger problem understanding the problem with lead in Deer hunting bullets. I read that the CA DNR is worried that Condors will get lead from big game gutpiles. Ok, we don't have Condors in MN. From what I have read the non-lead bullets then to cause higher pressures. Also the pricepoint of lead-free bullets is higher than conventional core bullets. The price of bullets is already way up, I would rather they not continue to climb.
