What do california shooters use with lead being outlawed for projectiles?  I know there are copper bullets but what do you shoot in a 1:60 Twist muzzleloader?

There is one or two places making non Lead balls.
They are over a dollar a ball.
Also they must be on the California approved list.

Yes, and they are on the list.
However they are not actually round, they have a band around the middle.
