    Seems I read a report once where silver actually made lousy bullets.

    Are you a werewolf? That is a classic werewolf propaganda statement.

    I make my own buckshot in case the Apocalypse is decidedly more supernatural than we were expecting.

    Silver pellets for the werewolves.
    Iron pellets for the fairies.
    Salt for the witches.
    Gold pellets for the demons.

    I shape the malleable metals into crosses, too, just in case it's vampires we're dealing with.

    I suspect the shells won't pass FBI standards.

    Come to think of it, it was an issue of Werewolf Weekly.

    Honestly, I think that was the dumbest product I've ever seen.

    Actually a local guy buys his lead from a silver mine 40,000 pounds at a time.
    This lead is a by product of the silver production and since they cannot remove all the lead (in order to maintain the purity of the silver) the bullets have a very high silver content.
    These are beautiful, hard, no foul, and due to their silver content stay bright unlike lead. I don't know if he does any INTERNET but the name is "Precision Cast Bullets" they are the only lead i use when I reload. :-)

    I'll take real ammo please. For the price of one silver bullet you can get me a box or two of the real stuff.


    Ok, the reason I think it is dumb is that if you are buying silver as a hedge against a monetary collapse why would you want it in goofy bullet shapes. One ounce coins will, in a way, be a standard currency when there is no currency. Why would you buy something goofy as a hedge against financial collapse?
