100 ShellCrackers (cracker shells) bird scaring pyrotechnics
Similar to Bird Bombs®, Shell Crackers ("cracker shells") explode with a very loud "BANG" that scares pest birds and wildlife.

Shell Crackers are fired from a 12 gauge shotgun. They're are especially useful when a greater firing distance is desired as they will travel 200 feet or more before exploding. Actual range varies depending on firing angle and wind factor.

Shell Crackers must be fired from a clean shotgun without a full choke, and with a chamber at least 2-3/4 inches long, and a barrel at least 20 inches long.

Effective 4/19/18, the U.S. BATF no longer requires an FEL / federal explosives license for purchase of Shell Crackers, but your Statement of Responsible Person & copy of valid photo ID are required to be on file with Sutton Ag prior to purchase.
