Their ashes that is…
We offer a way to honor your deceased loved one by giving or sharing with him or her one more round of clay targets, one last bird hunt, or one last stalk hunt.
Once the caliber, gauge and other ammunition parameters have been selected, we will ask you (by way of your funeral service provider) to send approximately one pound of the decedents ash to us. Upon receiving the ashes our professional and reverent staff will place a measured portion of ash into each shotshell or cartridge.
Our prices start at $1250.00 for 250 rounds (one case) of high quality, hand loaded leadshot shotshells in gauges .410, 28ga., 20ga., 16ga., 12ga. and 10ga. Other specialty loads such as migratory bird loads like bizmuth or steel, slugs and buckshot are the standard cost of $1250.00 per case plus the current market cost for specialty loads.
That’s quite the markup. If you had the reloading equipment you could just do it yourself as part of the grieving process.

Normally I try to talk about funny stuff, but people have been relentlessly emailing me this for the past couple months.
What do you guys think of the idea?
