Default Biodegradable Question

I heard some company was making shotcups that disintegrated in sunlight. Anyone heard of such things? Any made to rot away?

I've got a couple of boxes of those in 20 and 12 here. Also have some old Fedral .410s with the older fiber type wads. Nice to see someone is still making stuff like that.

Great idea, and I never understood why they have to be hard plastic, not cardboard. They trash the range like nothing else does, and don't go anywhere.

Bobski- they beat you to it,

There are also companies that make biodegradable golf tees- they are compressed peat moss with a trace of fertilizer. Powders when a club strikes it, makes golf course green.
