This could cause you to have raised blood lead levels, and I suggest that you have these tested and discuss treatment options - if deemed necessary - with your doctor. It doesn't sound as if your case is serious - studies show that a small piece of ammunition lead that has not fragmented, especially if it has not caused trauma to boney tissue, is unlikely to lead to serious elevation of blood lead levels. Nonetheless, please have it checked out.
