Wax is a poor choice for a sealant. On one hand it will run in or off when hot. On the other hand it will get brittle and break off when cold. I use a small glob of clear silicone sealer (mashed in with a finger tip) to keep the buffer in place on my buckshot loads.
In my younger years I experimented with a variety of things in shot shells, none of which I would try today.
I think I will try that silicone.. Thanks..
In the past when using 7.5 or #8 shot some of it would fall out, I was concerned about a jam. Great idea..

I would be more concerned about using something likely to become a BORE OBSTRUCTION if it does not clear the barrel. Note how THIN the walls of a shotgun barrel are? There is a LOT of chaos taking place a few millimeters from your left hand, ya know.
