I have a pellet in my leg and I am wondering how i can remove it?

I got shot in my left leg with a small metal pellet. It went almost all the way through my leg and I want to remove it. I tried with a needle but it hurt like crazy. I would like to know if orajel for tooth ace would numb it so I can remove the pellet.
