Default Flame thrower 12 ga. Ammo??

Greetings:
Does anyone know if you can reload your own Flame Thrower 12 GA. Ammo?? I know it can be bought, but really expensive stuff. Was wondering if anyone had a recipe for it or if it can even be done by home reloaders??

Regards: Lastcast, Ranger Recon, Class of 67.

That's what I was going to say.
I'm a firm believer in risking life and limb in the name of adventure, but there is such a thing as a stupid risk, and I believe this falls in that category.

When you have a shotgun with flames lickin off of the muzzle for 5' then its time to stop.

5' is a weak load, that stuff should reach out to about 30-40 feet. Sometimes more.

No i mean off frome the barrel sides itself. As in it tirned the shotgun muzzle into a candle wick. It did shoot most of the load about 30 yards. The wad held enough at the end of the barrel to cause it to flame up

They will cycle and they are about $5-$15 a round. They arent worth it.

Get some if you want them, they are no different externally than a standard shell. They will feed just fine.
