How will EPA proposal effect self defense?

The EPA is reviewing a proposal to try to ban lead handgun and long gun bullets. I heard the new ones will be twice as expensive limiting the amount people can aford to practice. Also I wondered if you knew if they would be a differnt weight? For example many people think the optimum self defense hollow point out of a 4inch 357 mag is a 125 grain bullet going 1450 feet a second. What if the none lead one is only 90 grains?

I wanted to get your take on this issue and find out if you think these new bullets would be as good for self defense.

Manzoli7, there isn't much I can add to the solid commentary from GT members which your similar query elicited elsewhere in GT:

We also need to consider that non-lead self-defense projectiles are not yet thoroughly "street-proven," and all-copper projectiles can bring toxicity problems of their own.

best,
Mas
