    A couple of lead pellets in a pheasant breast or a wild hare don't cause measurable blood lead levels.

    Typesetters and roofers who worked with metallic lead 6 days/week used to have elevated lead levels.

    You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. -Frank Zappa

    And that's generally caused by poor hygiene buy not washing well before eating.
    Working with lead under normal conditions is not a huge problem unless you consume it or you heat it until it vaporizes and you inhale it.
    Scrub well and wash the clothes you were working in...

    Correct. Their main exposure was from inhaling vapor while casting and from eating with lead and lead oxide covered fingers. Gloves, good ventilation and washing your hands with cold water and soap and you can work with ammo or tin soldiers all day without bumping your lead levels. Oh, and keep work clothes separate from your kids clothes.

    Yes to most,, Generally with normal lead alloy and pure lead casting temperatures are 650 to 800.
    If I remember pure lead doesn't vaporize until 1700+ .
