Lead free .22LR ammo

I've got access to an organic alfalfa farm being overrun by squirrels BUT i've still got to use lead-free ammo. Anyone with any experience with .22LR lead free? They are really light (20ish grains if I recall) and fast so I'm assuming I'll need to rezero. Expensive, too.

Normal 22LR rounds are ~38 grains. You're going to get some nice velocity out of a 20 grain round if the powder charge is the same.

I have a few 22LR pistols (some revolvers and some semi auto) and a few rifles (some bolt action and some semi auto). I standardized on Federal Game Shok 38 gr ammo because different ammo will behave differently - use the same ammo and everything is more predictable. Probably doesn't make much difference unless it's a shooting competition, but I'm picky I guess. Point being, if you go to this 20 gr lead free, you will need to sight in your gun for it.

I am jealous. I'd love to have access to a farm over run with squirrels. If you need any help......

One negative about the farm is its about 5 hrs north/east, that's a long day. Can't stay on property. I'm sure there's camping somewhere near.
