    Since I cant post a URL: because not enough posts Yet.. Look Up cut shells or cut slugs on You-Tube. Its a way to turn a reg. shot shell into a deer/person killer.

    speer has those shotshell capsuls for the 38/357 which is great for all kinds of buckshot or mini slugs with buckshot. its not a 410 but I loaded a few up and has a great pattern at 7-10 yards. would be great for a last resort gun or even in a survival situation if you had to snag a bird or two and didnt have your shotgun with you at the time. in self defense it would work since someone would think twice if they took a few of those rounds.

    Does AAA flashlight batteries or fired 5.45 Russian cases as .410 slugs count as specialty ammo? I've worked up some loads as *homework* for times when factory shotshell ammo may not be easily available, and storing shotshell primers is a lot less cubic-eating than storing loaded ammo, especially in 12-guage.

    I've done some tinkering at reloading once-fired shotgun shell primers as well.

    In a SHTF situation the last thing you need is a ruined gun, misfires or loading problems ..... could be kissing your arse goodbye ....

    For reloading .410s ..... check into using rifle cases (.400+ ect size calibers) ...... hundreds of reloads before the casings crap out .... check out Matt Stairs website on this ..... he's the guru

    Plain out stupid using cut shells or bs slug materials like dimes ..... buy plenty of factory slugs, especially the sabots ...... get a slug mold and add smelting to your reloading capabilities .....

    Fletchettes were something the military paid for the r&d ...... wasn't worth the hassle of the Geneva Convention Violation complaints ....... they turn up alot in IEDs along with ball bearings, roofing nails and glass crumble

    I saw that movie. I think he said. "Keep the change." after shooting him with dimes.

    I can't remember if I posted this on here before. I know someone that cuts piano or guitar string in 17 inch lengths. Puts a split shot sinker on each end-squeeze on with plyers, and coils up inside a shotgun wad once its in the shell. Crimps the end and goes with it. You can shoot it and it comes open in mostly a straight line and whirles through the air like the "mower" balls on chains that was used in the civil war. Now the line dosn't just go horizontal, sometimes it goes at a crooked angle. This can cut brush like a mower.
    Watch what you shoot with it. He was shooting a tall vertical pole that holds a sign at a intersection and it didn't cut all the way through. It sent a splitshot back through his windshield. The coolest things to shoot with this is a large flock of starlings, cattails and tree branches with alot of leaves on them.

    He saw it on a movie and wanted to try it....it worked....until his Mossy's barrel split from the end to about 4" toward the breech.....It was already sawed-off 1/2" over legal, so he had to replace the barrel.....dumb.
