    That is a 223 bullet casing most commonly fired from an ar-15 rifle

    actually a 22. short

    Do you need to use a bullet shell or can you use something else??????????

    if u dont have any laying around... if u have a cabellas ... or a shooting range near you, you can ask for a 22. shell and they usually will give u 1 or 2
