Default Short shotgun shells

Have any of you all seen those new short shotgun shells. They say they are almost half the size of a 3 inch shell I want to try them out once all the dust settles

Aguila? If so, they aren't new. I bought some 7-8 years ago for a recoil shy person in a 12 gauge single shot. They didn't cycle in my 870 worth a crap.

The Aguilla mini shells are an inch and three quarters.

Read the link I posted. They do in some, some need a modification. I use them to let my younger grandkids dove hunt with me- SXS 12 g, 28" bbls and those short shells- VERY manageable recoil.
