Bet that would make for some interesting shot patterns!!
I had thought of that also. I have made and shot some wax slugs before. Don't know how much, if any, damage the primers would do to the shotgun barrel. They are not quite like lead going down the barrel, but then again people do shoot steel shot.l
I've never dont that, but I have thought about it.
It probably would be a lighter load charge that lead or steel shot, but I bet the pattern would disperse quickly.
Hmmmm never thought about that one
Ummm it may.
Hmmm... since they're not round (ball-shaped), they may try to stack and wedge.
The only time I've been to a gunsmith (to get scope mounts on my Eddystone), he had a customer's shotgun in with a split barrel. I asked what happened, and he said it was caused by steel shot. I asked if it happened often, and he said more often than you'd think.
EDIT: While that is the only time I've been to a gunsmith as an adult, I just remembered that I did take a single shot Stevens .22 to an old smith as a teenager (the extractor would slip off the case rim). He filed down the extractor to sharpen the hook. I still have the gun, and it still extracts just fine.
If they stay inside the wad, shouldn't be a problem.
They are brass & softer than steel.
They are brass, recycle them
paint them red and black and play checkers with them
