This is one hell of a load in any shoulder fired weapon. Back in the day a cowboys wages was around $17 dollars a month. That would be a little over .50 cents a day. It seems 25 dimes would have been a weeks pay. Now do I believe that they shot dimes in a shotgun? Do I believe silver bullets were used to kill vampires?
I dont think they actually used dimes back then. Sand, horse shoe tacks, nail heads, rocks, salt, glass and stuff? Dang skippy those things were used. So was ragged chunks of lead dug out of the ground. Iv even heard of people usin obsidian.

It seems from old yarns that steel carpet tacks were used.

I played with sections of brazing rod many moons ago. Kind of poor mans flechettes. Did not stabilize like real flechettes because of the lack of fins and the rods were too weak, they bent upon firing. They were hell on close range water moccasins though

I once knew a guy who rolled his pwn HD rounds with 9 .32 cal. lead balls and 24 (?) ga. steel leaders. Chain shot anyone? Probably not even legal anymore, but pretty effective when he tested it back in '85. He lived just outside of a swamp in Onslow County NC, and was already in his 90s at that point, so he is probably no longer with us.
