Nothing really crazy about it. All that you're doing is weakening the back part of the shell enough so the wad and shot don't open the crimp on the end when you shoot.

I remember my Grand dad telling me about this when I was younger. Never tried it as slugs and buckshot are easy to find but it really looks like it would work well. I am just wondering how it would work in a pump or auto with the shell weakened would it jam the gun?

Looks like a cool trick for SHTF and all you have is some target loads and you need to hunt deer or medium/large game or something. Otherwise, just buy slugs.

Interesting to say the least, but, it does have a purpose when shooting large game when you only have birdshot . .

shells need to be fluorescent green, then you could call it zombie ammo . .

and to go from shot shell to equivalent of 70 cal, yep, good home defense ammo . .

I wonder what the comparison for a 20 gauge would be?

He mentions to not feed cut shells from magazine. however, he does shoot some of the wax slugs through a saiga.

I now was able to see the other videos also. I can see why the old timers like double barrel shotguns. It would make reloading easier than reloading a pump for single shot.

I think it would be great for a break action like he was using but try that with the Siaga like shown, a semi like a Mossberg or Benelli, or even a pump, I think the cycling would tear/ deform/ bend that 1/8" retaining strap and bind up in the action. Good knowledge to know just incase... but again, I wouldn't run it the a repeater/ pump.
