Is there anything like a water tight shotshell?
If so, what company makes them?
If they arn't made by anyone. How do I make them myself?

Hope to get some suggestions. :)

Modern shotgun shells can handle brief immersion, some not so brief.

Shells with the crimp sealed by melting the plastic a bit would be best at this.

Note, in days of old before plastic, we used paper cases. oft these would have been dropped in the bilges of a duck boat, or the inescapeable pool in a pit blind. If we could get them to chamber, they'd shoot. Sometimes they'd swell up and we couldn't get them in.
