Necessary to use delead? Login/Join 
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.

Just wash your hands with soap and cold water and you'll be fine.

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.

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 use taking any chances.

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.
