I hate to say it, but the writing is on the wall. We will all be using copper, or some other non-lead material, bullets sooner than later. It's already here in Germany, and I've been using copper for a few years now. I've shot quite a few deer, including a Red deer cow, and have seen no performance issues with the copper. Same with accuracy on the range, out to 100 meters. Like lead bullets, there are some copper bullets that are better than others. I've shot the Barnes X and the Winchester 95/5 out of my .308 and have had good performance. I'd still feel more comfortable with a Nosler Partition, though, which might just be this head that doesn't like to change.
As I said, the writing is on the wall. The PGC Facebook page has made several posts over the past few weeks talking of the "bad" from lead fragments ingested by eagles and other raptors. You guys might want to start trying some copper out sooner than later.
People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.
