Squirrels DO chew on lead. Not really for food but to wear down their teeth because they are constantly growing.

Years ago I worked for the phone company. In the bigger cities, lead shielded cables were the norm 50 years ago. We referred to squirrels as the telephone man's furry friend. They kept us busy repairing holes in Arial cables that let water in and wreaked havoc.

I've wiped my share of lead due to varmints too.

I left my old API treestand in the woods all year one season. The squirrels chewed on it all over. So much that it grooved it just like your bullet. But aluminium is alot harder than lead. Their teeth are real tough!
