I personly like ball bearings better.
It is true that you can get lead poisoning if you mishandle lead. However if you take proper precautions it is no worse than any other material that you can use and greatly increases the terminal ballistics of a slingshot. Marbles and stones are too light (not very dense) and stones are often irregular and can nick your bands. Usually it is the lead oxides that cause problems since they are easily absorbed into the body. Unless you chew the lead or hold lead balls in your mouth (don't ask, but I hear it tastes sweet) you are not likely to become overly exposed to absorbable quantities of lead.
lead oxid not really a problem as it is not very soluble... and the sweet taste... sounds like lead sugar(literal translated from german) which is what you get when lead oxides are exposed to acetic acid

my version:
get rebar, cut really short length off, ta-dah

Great idea,  I like the idea of being able to adjust the size of its projectile bassed on the intended target,  the poster below me is correct you are safe.
in answer to all of the problems below...use thick tin foil simple ;-D

if you do decide to use this (which no one will) you might want to varnish the lead to seal it to stop the chances of getting lead poisining

This is a good idea but, lead is a horrible substance! you could use tin instead.
