    Maybe it was the shell from your first deer, or your first bulls eye or some other great shot. Do you have a collection of shells? lets hear about it.

    Nope. Only reason I save brass is to give it to a friend that reloads.

    My second deer, I made a mount with the rack out of some scrap oak and suede, then a month or so later I was eating a great burger I made and bit into a bullet fragment which I promptly cleaned off dabbed with super glue and stuck it to the oak under the one sided forked horn.:thumbup: And I do have the shell somewhere.

    No, just for reloading, but I do have the target from my first 5 round group under 1" at 100 yards. I think... Aw, it's around here somewhere. :)

    Yes, casing from Son's first big game kill, a buffalo even. Was not able to recover bullet as it went through. Father-in-law has case and recovered bullet next to the mounted elk horns.

    No casings but I have 5 or six bullets I have recovered from deer elk and moose.

    i dont save brass but i build my own fishing spinners so whenever i catch a nice salmon or steelhead on one i save it.
    sometimes the same spinner pattern just spins better than others so i like to refere to the one that kept getting hits.
