We produce ammunition in a variety of configurations for seismic applications only. If you are not in the seismic industry, don't bother to ask.
Sulfur-free smokeless powder - All our shells come loaded with environmentally friendly propellants that are far less corrosive than black powder shells that used to be supplied for Betsy Gun systems. While we do not offer black powder at this time, we can make rounds that are acoustically equivalent to legacy ammunition.
Electric ignition - Electric fire ammunition produces superior quality data compared to percussion fire ammunition by reducing the burn time of the propellant, and reducing the post-ignition acoustic noise of the system. Any Betsy Gun can accept electric fire ammunition.
Percussion Fire - We produce ammunition for legacy Betsy Gun systems that operate using a firing pin. However, converting your existing Betsy Gun to an electric fire system is easy, it will make the gun safer, and will produce better data than any percussion fire system.
Water-proofing - We offer shells that will survive in even the most inhospitable conditions, allowing the user to pour water in the shot hole to increase acoustic conductivity.
