I've never noticed any smell on shotshells but blackpowder rifle and pistol cartridges are loaded with Non-petroleum grease. the petroleum grease combines with sulfur to make a asphalt like fouling when fired. The easiest to get Non-petrol grease is Bacon grease! And you can definitely smell the bacon cooking when they are being shot! it makes me hungry every time! DR
