    hi there!
    i do alot of messing around with loading ALL kinds of things into 12 ga birdshot shells, and vlasting them out!! ppl have told me im a moron..and im going to blow my hands off... well keep talkin, cuz i like to put things to the test, and so far so good!! ive luanched airsoft bb's, salt+rocks ;) broken glass, tack nails...hell ive luanched skittles at 1200 fps!! (taste the rainbow!)

    i was wondering if anyone else packs shells...and any other good idea for shell packing? :)

    Make sure you keep good records. It'll look good on your Darwin award.

    no, i don't want to be classified as a moron! i tend to do my loading by the book, that way all my body parts stay where they belong and my gun doesn't become scrap metal.

    I know that when cannons first came about they used pratically anything they could find that would fit down the barrel of it to fire. When you apply the same thing to a shotgun there's some problems that can happen. You can seriously damage the inside of the barrel and choke. If you fired lets say a single big rock out of the shell it could break the choke or even blow up the firearm if it got stuck inside the choke. The reason for this is when the bullet or single projective engages rifling or the choke it gets swagged, which means it is compressed to provide a solid seal so gases will not escape in front of the projectile.

    I once took the 00 out of a 2.75" shell and loaded it to about the same weight in .22cal lead pellet gun pellets,and made a paper cap to hold them in just to see what it would pattern like for fun.I never actually tried it out though,maybe someday,or maybe i'll just buy some #4 buck and get the same results for less money--haha.I have heard of rocksalt though.

    What exactly is cut shell?I have heard the term but never looked it up.The reason I ask is because our DNR rules say that 5 days before firearm deer season you are not allowed to be in the woods with a centerfire pistol,rifle,or shotgun with buckshot,slug or "cut shell".
