Holy Smoke, a business in Stockton, Alabama (of course) will gladly accept the ashes of your loved ones and turn them into bullets. No, this is not a joke.
Holy Smoke, based in Stockton, Alabama, boasts a ‘tribute to your outdoorsman or woman like no other,’ according to their website. The company offers a means to ‘continue to protect your home and family even after you are gone,’ by turning ashes into fully-functioning bullets.
Once the deceased’s family decides the calibre and gauge of the ammunition, they send one pound of their dead relative’s ashes. From there, the staff place a portion of the cremated remains into each shotshell or cartridge, depending on the ammo selected. In return, Holy Smoke sends the family a case of up to 250 bullets for display in the home or to take on a hunting trip.
Note to my next-of-kin: I would not be opposed to this measure.
