Default Non-Lead Sabot or Slug Ammo?

Hey... my wife (a nutritionist who pays attention to these things) sent me this interesting article on lead fragments in game:

http://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/48420.html

So I found out about Barnes Vor-tx rounds (no-lead) for the rifle, but is there anything out there for the shotgun?

thanks.

Most doctors agree that the very small percentage of lead is non-harmful if you eat it in moderation...and leaner moderation for children and pregnant women of course but....if the food shelf accepts lead filled deer....i think we'll be ok....and i've seen remington have copper slugs.

For the past three years I've been using the Remington Copper-solids. http://www.remington.com/products/am...bot-slugs.aspx

They expand a lot and leave pretty nice size holes and are more accurate than a lot of lead ammunition.
