What is the filler in HEVI-Metal® shells? Is it flax seed? What is the filler used for, taking up excess space or as a buffer?


We ensure a good solid surface for crimping by using flax seed to fill the top of our shells. We are probably nuts for adding this expense, but it’s just one more example of the extremes we go to in order to provide the highest quality product. The beauty of flax seeds is that they biodegrade completely, unlike the plastic filler sometimes used by other companies.
