I dont think you guys understand what a wax slug is. This is how you make a wax slug:
1. Cut the top off of a field load/birdshot as close to the top as you can
2. Melt Wax
3. Pour your shot into the wax
3. Pour the wax and shot mix into your wad using the minimum amount of wax necessary. You'll have about a dozen pellets left if you're using 7.5 shot.
This makes you a one ounce slug that is essentially frangible. It hits with all the authority of a 7.5 shotshell fired with the muzzle pressed against the intruders chest. Devastating stuff. But safer for other people in the building.
My only concern is whether or not they present a problem for cycling. I've made two, and I don't see any reason why they wouldn't. They don't spill shot like a cut shell will.
Be very careful. I personally wouldn't risk losing an limb or eye. If I wanted a slug, I'd shoot a slug. If I wanted something for HD/SD I'd use whatever size shot is appropriate for my location/situation at the time.
