Each of the 5 oz Silver Bullet 12 Gauge specimens available to you here today comes with protective packaging. These silver bullets won’t take down a vampire and are not compatible with real firearms, but that doesn’t detract from their beautiful design and the impressive value of the 5 Troy ounces of .999 silver.
Shotguns descended from the blunderbuss and were initially smoothbore firearms. There was no need for a shotgun round to provide accuracy over distance. The purpose of a shotgun was to provide devastating self-defense in close encounters or combat. In fact, the military value of shotguns returned during World War I as American troops deployed shotguns in trench warfare with impressive success.
These 5 oz Silver Bullets replicate the appearance of a 12 gauge shotgun round. The design focuses on the shotgun shell itself. The typical shotgun round consists of a shell, brass cap, propellant, and shot inside. With these 5 oz Silver Bullets though, you’ll find only a solid chunk of .999 pure silver in the shape of a round.
12 gauge shotgun rounds are deployed in a variety of different types of shotguns. Original examples included breach-loaded firearms. Over the course of time, shotguns evolved to offer 12 gauge rounds in lever-action, pump-action, revolver-action, and even fully-automatic assault shotguns.
On the bottom of each of these 5 oz Silver Bullets are the only engravings you’ll find. The bullets feature engravings of “5 oz,” “999,” and “Ag,” indicating the weight, purity, and metal content of these silver bullets for sale.
