Shotgun shells originated in the 1600s with the blunderbuss. This gun evolved over the years and so did the ammo. The first shells were made of brass like the other caliber ammunition but starting in the late 1870s the shells were made of paper coated in wax. They continued being made this way until the 1960s when the shells began coming out with a plastic casing which solved a lot of issues the paper hull shells had. They are made with plastic casings to this day.
This would make a wonderful gift for gun enthusiasts, 2nd amendment supporters, hunters, and firearms hobbyists. They will appreciate how close this replica is to the real thing. The dimensions are very close to a real .308 bullet.
This is a 5 oz replica shell made of .999 fine silver. Stamped on the base is ‘5 oz 999 AG’. and the SilverTowne mintmark, a pickaxe.
It seems kind of fitting that many of the most popular shotgun shells were created by Winchester and this silver replica is minted by a mint located in Winchester, Indiana.
The 5 oz Silver Bullet 12 Gauge Shotgun shell replica is the perfect gift for the hunter in your life. This gift not only speaks to the recipients hobby but also as it is made of 5 oz .999 fine silver it gets them started in the metal collecting hobby and that can only be a good thing.
