The process of of having cremated remains (cremains) placed in live ammunition begins when you contact us. You tell us what type of hunting or shooting that the decedent practiced and we can help you decide what will best suit your needs. Once the caliber or gauge and other ammunition parameters have been selected, we will ask you or your service provider to ship approximately one pound of the decedents cremains to us. Upon receiving the cremains our professional and reverent staff will place a measured portion of cremains into each shot shell or cartridge.
(Please note that our process uses only a portion of the cremains from a typical cremation.)
Example: 1 pound of cremains is enough to produce 250 shotgun shells (one case).
