    This article came from the July 6, 1906 edition of Youth's Companion magazine. It was Number Eight in a series entitled "How Some Common Things Are Made". Doesn't it seem strange that, not only was shot and making shot considered common in 1906, but also that the article was written for a youth's magazine. Never happen today.
