I always wash my hands with soap, then use delead at the indoor range I use. It’s just force of habit because it’s there, but is delead necessary? I only use factory ammo, no reloads.
Sounds a little paranoid to me.
ever think of taking up golf,oh wait,there is pesticides on the grass.
Just wash your hands with soap and cold water and you'll be fine.
"It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts." Sherlock Holmes
Why not take whatever precautions you believe are reasonable? Lead exposure is not good for us or the people we’re around, especially children. If you’re concerned, have you had your blood lead levels checked? Even though I only wash after range sessions, I would never tell anyone, “Oh, you don’t need to do that,” without knowing much more about their circumstances that may be completely different from mine.
“Most men … can seldom accept the simplest and most obvious truth if it … would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions … which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabrics of their lives.”
— Leo Tolstoy
|Plowing straight ahead come what may|
I wash with a squirt of liquid laundry soap when I finish reloading...I take these with me when I go to the range...
I agree with sigfreund...no use taking any chances.
"we've gotta roll with the punches, learn to play all of our hunches
Making the best of what ever comes our way
Forget that blind ambition and learn to trust your intuition
Plowing straight ahead come what may
And theres a cowboy in the jungle"

I carry those same delead wipes in my range bag too.
I use them BEFORE I get to where I can wash my hands. After policing up the brass, casing/holstering the guns amd everything else you do when you are packing up to go, my hands are filthy.
I want to remove as much lead as I can *before* I start to grab ear pro, the handles on my range bag, keys (remote start to get the AC going), hearing aids, etc.
