I am confused about the nature of Sharonan firearms as described. It was said that the guns fired lead pellets instead of bullets. Am I missing something because I have never heard of a rifle, with the exception of gas-powered BB guns, that fired metal pellets. Design quirk of the books or something else?

It might be just flavor. Both words are derivatives of words that mean "ball".
