U.S. company turns gun lovers' ashes into ammunition

There's something to be said for going out with a bang.

Two Alabama game wardens have devised a smoking send-off for avid hunters and gun enthusiasts. For a small fee, they will turn cremated ashes into ammunition that the deceased's loved ones can fire at will.

Since it launched in Jyly Holy Smoke LLC has had only two clients, but founders Thad Holmes and Clem Parnell said they have seen an uptick in prearrangements thanks to word-of-mouth and a recent flurry of international press...

At first I thought cremation in Alabama wouldn't be too popular, but the Southern Baptists haven't denounced it, so maybe these boys can make some money.
