Lead Splitshot alternatives??

hi guys, well, lead splitshot in the sizes i use for fishing have been banned for sale in my state. still legal to use but not sell. looking for some non toxic alternatives as ive pretty much depleted my lead supply. any suggestions? i use size B , with "ears", 99% of the time. tried the gremlin tin shot, no good. tried the tungsten putty, which works pretty well, but its very pricy. $5 for a piece the size of a quarter. wondering what others have tried. thanks, mark
