One of the greatest benefits of buying silver, beyond its affordability, is its variety. When you shop for silver online, you’ll find no shortage of options when it comes to size, style, and format. Silver bullion is available as coins, bars, rounds, medallions, statues, and even bullets. No, you can’t use these bullets to strike down a werewolf. In fact, though all silver bullets produced by refiners have the exact size and shape specifications to real-life rounds, none are capable of being discharged in firearms. They are purely a fun means of purchasing silver. JM Bullion carries a growing variety of silver bullets, all of which you can learn more about below.
The smallest silver bullets commonly produced represent the .45 caliber handgun round. The .45 caliber is one of the most commonly manufactured handgun rounds and is widely recognized as having impressive stopping power for a handgun. The .45 caliber round was widely used in the US Armed Forces from World War I through Vietnam, and was long a popular round among law enforcement agencies in the United States as well.
The .45 caliber silver bullet is available as a 1 oz Silver Bullet from JM Bullion. Each silver bullet features .999 pure silver with the exact size and shape specifications of a .45 caliber round. The silver bullets are offered inside of plastic jewelry bags for individual bullets or protective 10-packs.
Designed by iconic American arms manufacturer Winchester, the .308 caliber is the parent casing for the 7.62×51 NATO round and is a popular choice for sport hunting in the United States today. The .308 caliber round is often used in single-shot rifles by those hunting whitetail deer, pronghorn, caribou, and even black bear when necessary to defend one’s land. Like other silver bullets, the .308 Caliber Silver Bullet is a realistic depiction of the actual round.
The .308 Caliber Silver Bullet is available in 2 Troy oz of .999 pure silver and comes individually packaged inside of plastic bags or inside of protective 10-pack packaging. The silver bullets mimic the size and shape of a .308 round and have inscriptions only on the base of the round where the firing pin where the charge of the round would ignite following the strike of the firing pin.
Shotguns are popular firearms in the United States, both in use by the Armed Forces and law enforcement, as well as among individual Americans. Shotguns are commonly used for sport shooting and hunting, particularly duck and goose hunting. The 12 gauge shotgun round is the most common. Gauges in shotgun rounds are determined by the weight, as a fraction of a pound, of the solid sphere ball of lead used in the round.
The 12 Gauge Silver Bullet is a 5 Troy oz round with .999 pure silver content. Like other silver bullets, the 5 oz 12 Gauge Bullet mimics the size and shape of an actual round and has a smooth finish with no markings. The only inscriptions are of the weight, purity, and metal content on the base of the round.
The .50 caliber round made its debut on the battlefields of Europe during the end of World War I in the M2 Browning Machine Gun used by American Forces. The gun was designed by John Browning and featured the heavy .50 caliber round that fires from machine guns at a devastating rate of 450 to 600 rounds per minute. The .50 caliber round has an effective range of 2,000 yards and a max range of 2,700 yards, providing high-velocity downrange firepower.
All .50 Caliber Silver Bullets are available to you as 10 Troy oz silver bullets with .999 pure silver. The 10 oz .50 Caliber Silver Bullets are only available to purchase individually inside of custom boxes with a fitted sleeve due to their size.
The largest silver bullet currently available from JM Bullion is the 100 Troy oz 30 MM Round. 30 MM Cannon rounds are commonly deployed in heavy machine guns mounted on armored fighting vehicles. In the United States arsenal of weaponry, the 30 MM Cannon round is most famously used in the nose-mounted Gatling gun of the A10 fixed-wing aircraft. Known as a tank buster, the A10 was designed as a close air support frame and is capable of delivering the 30 MM Cannon round as high-explosive or incendiary rounds.
The 30 MM Cannon Silver Bullets come with 100 Troy oz of .999 pure silver and inscriptions on the base of the round that identify the weight, purity, and metal content. These silver bullets also ship individually inside of protective boxes due to their size.
Among the silver bullets produced by SilverTowne, you will find unique rhodium-and-gold plated silver bullets. These silver bullets are available in the exact same weights and shapes as the standard silver bullets. However, the visual distinctions on these silver bullets come to the forefront with combined platings of rhodium and gold over the surface of the silver bullet. In the case of all the silver bullets, the rhodium plating is applied throughout the surface. Each one has a distinct gold plating applied to a small portion of the bullet. For most of the bullets, this gold plating is applied to the “projectile” portion of the bullet to create a visual distinction. The lone exception is the shotgun-inspired silver bullet with the base of the round covered in the gold plating.
For those enthusiasts who enjoy investing in unique silver, the silver bullets available within this category are not only available for individual purchase, but also as part of multipacks that showcase all the prominent designs. These multipacks include four silver bullets housed together inside of a black box with soft, protective pieces within the box. The multipacks include the .50 caliber, 12 gauge, .308 caliber, and .45 caliber silver bullets. You will find not one, but two multipacks available. The standard silver bullets are all available together in a multipack, as well as the rhodium-and-gold-plated bullets together in their own multipack.
The majority of the silver bullets carried by JM Bullion are available to you courtesy of SilverTowne. A private American mint, SilverTowne opened in Winchester, Indiana in 1949 as a small coin shop and has evolved into a high-quality refiner of silver precious metals.
