Made from a 30-06 and 308 shell, it represents 2 of the 3 most popular military cartridges in the 20th century. This is a great choice for military and firearms history enthusiasts. The 30-06 is still the most popular hunting cartridge in the U.S. In it's 100+ year history it has probably killed more game than all other cartridges combined.

Made from two 308 shells, the current 30 caliber cartridge used by our military. Also designated the 7.62X51 NATO. Used in battle rifles, sniper rifles and light machine guns, it replaced the 30-06 and has been in use since the mid 50s. Known for accuracy, it has also become a very popular hunting and target cartridge rivaling the 30-06. A very convenient and balanced pen size.

Writing Tip options
This is a real bullet I fabricate into a functioning tip. Because of the fabrication time as well as extra cost of the bullet, I charge more for pens with this tip. It is the most popular choice. Most people like the look and authenticity of it. (This picture makes the tip look rough. It's not.)
