Hi,
I've got a question for all you waterfowlers. I'm not familiar with various the new non-toxic shot. In the days when there was only steel if a conservation warden did a field check for lead he would use a magnet to check if your shot was steel or lead. Now with advent of the new non-toxics how can they check? I'm curious because I hunt with a muzzle loader and carry my loads in shotgun speedloaders. How can a warden check to see if I have lead or one of the new ones?

Checking nontoxic loads

There is a product on the market called the "hotshot" (I think) that can determine the type of shot inside a shotshell without opening it. I think it has something to do with the densities of the materials involved.
