SS195 and SS198 are lead free. SS197 and SS192 have lead primers.

Some folks have reported issues with SS195 stored for several years suffering failure to fires.

What Wolly said but with one extra point of note - you have no idea how long the LF rounds have been sitting around on the shelf and/or in warehouses before they were purchased. MO has had LF rounds go bad within months of purchase but on average it seems to be around 3 years.
Contrary to popular belief, you CAN fix stupid - it's just illegal.

Will they all go LF in the near future?
