Understanding Ammunition Components

The term “bullet” is often used erroneously. The bullet is the projectile and it is just one component of the entire cartridge.

This diagram will help you understand the basic components of a cartridge.

We offer a wide variety of jewelry. Some utilizes the entire cartridge, other jewelry just utilizes certain components such as bullets, cases or case heads (the flat end of the case). Furthermore, some of our jewelry is entirely ammo-free.

Most important, NO jewelry and/or accessories sold on our site contains gunpowder or primers.

Therefore, nothing sold on our site contains live ammo.
