    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

    There is a shell called dragons breathe. Look of up on YouTube. I would have Some but I heard they won't cycle in a semi automatic.

    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.

    Yep, their cool to see, but they are expensive, and can easily set everything on fire. If you really want them, buy them. Otherwise, you (or someone else, or your gun) could really get hurt by one and it would be 100% your fault.

    Make sure you know your state laws concerning this type of ammo. I know that where I live it is illegal. It would be a silly thing to go to jail for, and in the process, lose your ability to ever own a firearm.......

    Ya the military has to replace barrels fairly quickly if they shoot very many of them at a time
