    So that comes to $2,549.15 + tax and shipping to fill a Glock 17 magazine.

    They'll have to halt production long enough to create the new bumper sticker.

    I did hear Mythbusters tried casting silver and discovered it is very difficult to cast, so silver bullets are actually machined. If I had a ton of money and no sugar momma to spend it on, I'd buy one for the grins and giggles.

    Well silver closed Friday at $27.66 per oz and there are 437 grains per oz. There would be about three of those bullets per oz. I believe they will make a profit....if they ever sell any.

    When I was a young person I loved those old monster movies, including the various wolfman pictures. So, I get the appeal. But not at that price point. Interesting novelty, I suppose, but not enough to bother.

    Well, at current market that round is worth about $8. They have a comfortable profit margin built it I would say.

    Don't be dense. Werebears and wererabbits have to follow the same rules of physics as werewolves do.:rofl:

    Remember, it's all about *the science*!:evil:

    That'd be a redundancy of expenditures.

    As I understand it, werewolves, werepigs and the like would whither at the mere brandishing of a Glock...... even an empty one, right?:neener:

    Bigfoot. But remember he is hard to see. AlwAys blurry. Gotta have your scope set just a tad blurry to get him in focus well enough to hit his vitals.

    you tube video where a guy made and shot silver bullets.



    And of course, if you just want a display bullet, amazon has them 45 acp for about $50

    https://www.amazon.com/oz-Silver-Bullet-45-Caliber/dp/B06XTD2CBQ/ref=pd_lpo_328_t_0/144-2621685-7827900?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B06XTD2CBQ&pd_rd_r=04ff7d59-8c89-48b4-b2b0-81ea52bd9115&pd_rd_w=merrZ&pd_rd_wg=6uuCi&pf_rd_p=a0d6e967-6561-454c-84f8-2ce2c92b79a6&pf_rd_r=F3181TX6WZPJ89NW4JB2&psc=1&refRID=F3181TX6WZPJ89NW4JB2

    I personally think this is the best idea, now, I just need to melt and make some .454 round balls or even better some silver BBs and load up some shotgun shells.

    99.9% silver is going for $33-$37 per troy (33.1 gram) ounce. Check out Apmex or Provident. Absolutely no silver is going for the "spot price" as that price is a government manipulated paper price. The going price is only going to increase with the inflation caused by massive deficit government spending. The $50 silver bullet may be worth $100 to you in a few years unless you have to kill a wierwolf or Dracula.

    That’s why I like THR. Come for the firearms, stay for the cryptozoology!

    Cast your own but don't expect any accuracy. Silver is harder than lead and won't take readliy to the rifling. Not much spin, not much accuracy.
