Just started using a 30-06 brass casing as a tamper and I like it--bullets and briar, it just works. Any carvers out there ever thought of using old bullet brass as a decorative shank band? There's just something hardy about the fusion of wood and metal.

One of the dear brothers on here made some of us once fired brass tampers.

Mine is 30carbine and .308. I seldom use a tamper but when I do I use that one.

They really do work well as tampers. Perfect size, flame resistant, and just plain cool. I've even seen .50 cal shells adapted into lighters, but those are a little too wide as to double as tampers.

I'm fairly certain Eric nording has been known to do some work with spent cartridge casings. A .308 does a great job personally.

"Bullets & Briar." I like it. Sounds like the title of a magazine for pipe-smoking mercenaries or something. I have owned an ammo casing tamper for many years, though I only use it when wearing the hat that it resides in. And I only wear the hat when wanting to look and feel special, like meeting the president of this here united states or going to an upper-level executive job interview. Or a prostate exam. Whenever the occasion calls for it. Other times a Rodgers or simple Czech pipe tool suffices, but I can see the appeal of ammo casing.

I have a few casings I kept to experiment with. I have been busy perfecting my current way of making tampers. But I plan on fusing some wood and casings soon!
