No. The copper plated lead loads that are commonly labeled as Pheasant loads are plated to have greater penetration and to not deform the pellet going in to cause the least amount of meat damage.

As stated above if the copper plating is over lead shot it is not considered non toxic. They plate lead shot with copper so you get less deformed pellets coming out of the barrel, it makes for a better pattern in the long run. I've quit reloading anything copper plated though because of copper has gone through the roof.
