When we moved here during the second gun season for deer, a fellow was
getting into his car going to work. He did not make that day due to
being shot in the ass. Guess you need the optic orange vest all the

Not sure if I should be offended by this thread or not... I woodwork,
mountain bike, shoot and hunt. ;~)
Having sawn bullets, intentionally and accidentally, I'd venture that unless
you happen to hit an armor piercing round with a steel/tungsten core it's
unlikely a bullet would noticeably damage most blades, least of all carbide.
Lead bullets and those with copper jackets are softer than some knots and in
some cases softer than the wood itself. I think woods high in silica (e.g.,
locust) eat up a blade faster than a lead bullet...
Or turning tools...
I haven't had that experience yet, but since they don't have the same effect on
stud finders as nails and barb wire, it's always a chance..
A friend was turning a vase and started hitting lead bird shot.. he just kept
He said that it gave the vase an unusual look and buffed well..lol

Funny you should mention that. At our local woodturners club in
Baltimore one of the members was showing off a very nice walnut bowl
that was turned with the lead bullets still in place. No copper clad,
just lead. It was interesting to see how the bullets were shaped as
easily as the walnut.
On a different topic, I work for my butcher as part of my deer hunting
vacation- free butchering and hunting priveleges (sun rise and
sunset) for 8 hours of work each day (plus they feed me breakfast,
lunch and dinner) There are a few times when we have to pull out some
bullet fragments from the meat grinder.
