Throughout the last few seasons, there have been references to Eugene being able to make "bullets" in a machine shop he found. That's an incorrect reference to what is actually a "cartridge". A cartridge is actually the assembly of 4 components: a brass casing, a lead bullet (typically encased in copper), gun powder, and a primer. Although you could argue that a lead bullet could be cast with the correct bullet mold, there has been no mention of them having one for the assortment of calibers used in the show. A machine shop is no use for casting bullets - sufficient raw lead to melt in a furnace and suitable molds are what's needed. Machining casings would be incredibly difficult in a normal machine shop, if not impossible. There is also no mention of obtaining the copious amounts of gunpowder and primers that would be necessary for constructing workable cartridges. Hand forming actual bullets would be tedious, time consuming, and produce highly inaccurate cartridges that wouldn't be effective beyond 25 yards. There is no way that primers could be constructed without highly specialized machinery, raw materials, and the correct flash powder which isn't even sold in gun shops. See more
They might not seem like much one at a time, but when they're in a group all riled up and hungry, man, you watch your ass.
With each passing year (or season) the title of the show (seen when the theme song is playing) decays a little more. Executive producer Gale Anne Hurd confirmed this. See more
