I do believe that back in the day if you had a shotgun
, sometimes you loaded it with whatever you had.
When all else fails.

I've seen accounts of lead balls being hammered flat and then cut into shot with a hatchet. Little square pellets. Used from a musket or rifled musket type by Confederate, Union, and Revolutionary troops to hunt squirrel while on campaigns.
