    I was thinking that since shotgun shells aer kind of destroyed after being fired how can you re-use them again? Are the people that load their own shotgun shells themselves? What kind of materials can you use instead of BB's if this is the case and get away with it?

    Shotshell reloading

    Depending how hot you reload your shells, will determan how many times you reload them, if you stick to basic stock loads like the way they were loaded when you bought them, I personaly don't like to use them more than 3 times, but thats just me, as far as outher things to load your shell with, there are all kinds of things people have loaded shotgun shells with, but I would not suggest you try this, as you may run into problems, that would cause you injury, don't do somthing stupid you cant take back, like loose a eyeball or fingers, or quite possably your life, or worse somone elses, that would be very hard to live with, stay safe and finish the game, the end result is the same what ever is at the end of a shotgun is dead, so keep it simple and buy a box of ammo.

    Anywhere from 2-3 all the way to 7-8, depending on whatcharge weight and basewad (paper or plastic).

    I've found that with the paper basewads that I may get 3, but in anycase I tossing then.
