This cartridge is based on the .30-30 Winchester cartridge of 1895, but differs from the .30-30 in bullet diameter. More significantly, Winchester decreased the rate of rifling twist in their Model 94 rifle, from 1:12 when chambered for the .30-30 to 1:16 when chambered for the .32 Winchester Special.
.30-30’s are also available (Try the search bar – it works!)
These artisan glass pieces are individually crafted using found objects with a zero waste philosophy in mind.
The glass bullet in this piece is created from a black base glass coated in blue caramel reducing frit giving the metallic speckled finish shown – set in a .32 Winchester Special cartridge.
Glass fills the entire length of each casing creating a very realistic weight.
I've added a jump ring hoop directly to each firing cap for a solid metal to metal connection transforming these up-cycled – found objects into beautiful, quality – keepsake pendants and ornaments!
