A look at some ballistically beautiful art pieces (PHOTOS)

How about a Mil-Spec 647gr .50BMG FMJ, with shredded $100 bills. It's a very bright, cool Aqua color that'll last 8+ hours after exposure to natural or artificial light. He calls it "The Money Shot." (Photo: BI)

California-based Ballistic Impressions handcrafts everything from paperweights to earrings and cufflinks, all with bullets as the medium.

Jason Bell is the man behind the scenes at BI and over the past couple years he has crafted more than 800 creations, taking pride in the fact that he donates 20 percent of all profits to non-profit 501(c)(3) Mil/LE organizations.

“Back to early 2015 and with the abundance of ammo I had from my own target/range shooting and reloading, I had an idea that started it all. Why not take my favorite rounds or bullets and encase them in whatever shaped mold I desired? That is quite literally how BallisicImpressions was born,” he notes.
