Introducing the powerful 12 ga Shellcracker - the perfect solution for scaring birds and other wildlife away from your property! These high-quality cartridges produce a loud, attention-grabbing noise that's sure to deter unwanted birds and predators, providing a safe and effective way to protect your crops, livestock, property, and more. Designed for use with a 12 gauge shotgun, the Shellcracker is easy to load and use, making it an ideal choice for farmers, ranchers, game wardens, airport managers, and anyone looking to keep wildlife at bay.

The ShellCracker is a standard 12 gauge 2 3/4" shotgun shell with a timed pyrotechnic report projectile. The projectile is launched from the shotgun and travels approximately 275 feet (85 meters) downrange before finishing with a flash and loud bang.  Great for medium range bird and animal control.

Use the ShellCracker as you would any standard 12 gauge shotgun shell.  To be used by qualified personnel with proper hearing, hand, and eye protection.  Never fire the ShellCracker at any individual. Use with open choke shotguns only. Not to be used with double barrel or semi automatic shotguns.​ We recommend a single barrel shotgun with break action.

A single Hazmat shipping charge will be added to the price of your order for any quantity up to 40 boxes. After 40 boxes an additional hazmat charge will be added.
