More exciting to throw them in your fireplace!
I would do a little experimenting. Cut one open see if it has a full load of powder. There is a phenomina (did I spell that right?) where you get over pressure with underloads.
I almost got a Browning A-5 for the price of a Marlin 1897 45-70. My friend was convinced the gun was defective cause he "missed" an 8 pointer with all 3 rounds from the A-5 at 30-40 yrds. The gunstore was going to give him $100 trade-in and he was crying about it so I told him I'd buy the Marlin and trade him. about the time I started filling out the paper work the jackalope came in the gun store yelling "What kind of ammo are you guys selling here"
he had Win 12ga 3"mag 000 buck, same thing my friend was using. it had enough powder for a very light dove load. My friend said he would keep the A-5 and I wanted to hurt that loud mouthed so and so. Not the only problem I've had with Win. ammo, I'll stick with Federal.
