No guys. Not "prop" bullets, but Hollywood bullets, the kind movie cowboys shoot in the movies.
Huh? Yeah, no. Not what MGM buys, but what they portray some guy using in 1880. On the other side of the screen
You see some cowboy shooting up the town or something for no big reason....when many folks simply couldn't afford to own guns
OR ammunition for them. Heck, the Musket Act of 1792 only required people to supply three rounds of ammunition because it was so damned expensive. And in the Wild West, one bullet still would cost more than most steak dinners. It was right up there with the groceries, the whiskey, or the price
of a bath and shave.
But Hollywood says they were cheap and plentiful, like the dozens that Roy Rogers could shoot without reloading each six-shooter.(G)
Now, as to what prop
bullets really cost? Who cares, they're incidental to a fifty million dollar production budget
. In theme parks, they used to prefer propane-fired guns, because bullets were too dangerous, too expensive, and they made that messy brass all over the floor. If a movie company can't afford to use CGI bullets, they probably should just have the actors shout "BANG! BANG!" instead.
