Design: The 'bullet' looks more like a World War I shell, with its looping trajectory and the splattering effect on the target.

History: Formed in Nashville in the early 1950s by Jim Bulleit, who went on to launch the J-B label and went on to co-found the legendary Sun Records with Sam Phillips in Memphis.
