Cremated Ashes as Ammunition

    I’m not quite sure what to make of this. A company called “Holy Smoke, LLC” claims to offer the unique service of loading ammunition with human remains (ashes) contained in either the shot cup or sealed in the bullet/projectile.

    The website does not offer much beyond a contact page and a description of the service offered – no sample photos or videos of the purported process are shown.

    The service costs $1250 and results in 100 rounds of rifle ammunition, 250 shotshells, or 250 pistol cartridges, in the caliber/gauge of your choice. There is a surcharge for wildcat calibers and “larger” pistol and rifle calibers.

    A Type 06 FFL is required to manufacture and sell ammunition in the United States, but there is no reference to this on the webpage, from what I could see.

    Thanks to Tim at FoxFury for the heads up.
