I can think of a more important reason for not smoking while reloading! And it's not the lead poisoning potential.

I'm into my 3rd decade of reloading, and (knocking on wood) I have never worn gloves either. I do wear safety glasses, most of the time, and wash up afterwards.

I think of the lead hazards when there's smoke being created from melted lead, and provide plenty of ventilation. Just considered never sticking my fingers in my mouth a sufficient safety measure. Rubber gloves make my hands sweat.
