Silver bullet lore from this link...
http://www.bulletforge.com/lore.php

Silver bullets have been made famous by the Lone Ranger
John Breeding of Denver Colorado offers this insight In point of fact, the Ranger used silver bullets for a couple of reasons
He did indeed have access to a silver mine (jointly owned by himself, his brother and a retired ranger named Jim Blaine) His other was killed by Butch Cavendish, so Jim Blaine was given the mine to work. It was Jim who actually made the Ranger's bullets for him. Jim was also the only other person besides Tonto who knew the Ranger's real name.
The Ranger wanted silver bullets to become a symbol of law and justice in the west. The "humane" argument isn't true, simply because the Ranger never shot to kill, only to disarm. These come from the very first Lone Ranger TV episode, "Enter the Lone Ranger" from 1949.

Silver Bullets -Vampires
I always thought that you needed sunlight, wooden stakes or holy water to do in a vampire Movie after movie seems to have silver bullets doing the job. Is this just hollywood? Anyway, to be safe you should order a hollowpoint silver bullet with holy water in it.

Silver Bullets - Werewolves (Lycanthropes)
Let's see if I can get this correct, lycantrhope hunters please help. Originally it wasn't silver that did the werewolves in, but Silver Nitrate, a strong anteseptic Either that or quicksilver (mercury) also toxic. Might be a good custom bullet, 44mag hollopoint filled with silver nitrate!

======

So, some Hollywood writer didn't know the difference between Quicksilver (aka Mercury) and Silver, so a werewolf movie got made about silver bullets instead and the mythos was changed. Then some other dumbass writers started using silver bullets for Vampires too. LOL ...but Silver Bullets really are the thing of the Lone Ranger!

Silver bullets are a legend like vampires and zombies.

They aren't made, and never have been, ( at least for shooting)

I thought the silver bullets were "anti-evil critter" due to the payoff to Judas being 30 pieces of silver?


I would go for some round silver ball ammo for my Remington NMA replica revolver.

I like the idea of electroplating silver bullets.

1) solid silver bullets would be too expensive to shoot
2) manufacturing solid silver bullets is more difficult

If you take a bullet and electroplate it adds a little thickness and can throw off the caliber measurement and become dangerous. If you just electroplate the coned front part, you wouldn't impact the sides that touch the barrel so it would be safe. It would be real silvertips with real silver.

I'm sure electroplate silver would work just as well on various monsters too!

There was an article in one of the gun rags 15 or 20 years ago about silver bullets. They found that silver shrinks much more than lead when it cools. One could cast silver bullets, but would have to start off with a larger than normal mold cavity to acheive a properly sized bullet.

I like the "Silver Bullets" that are brewed in Golden, Colorado!

Good joke - lousy beer. German's make jokes about Wasser-Beer.

Has anyone actually made or shot a silver bullet ?

Yes, each shot would be pricey, so I may not actually shoot. I just want a magazine full.
If you know any one that reloads maybe you can talk them into making you a few rounds..especially sense they will just be for show unless a werewolf attacts obviously
