i am not sure if this belongs in CAS or not. mods please move if necessary.

1. does anyone shoot black powder shotshells in a modern shotgun?
modern being one that does not have a damascus barrel. that you can you modern ammo in it.

2. do you load your own?
3. do you load it with birdshot or buckshot?
4. does anyone make their own black powder blanks?
if yes
5. do you use plastic shotshells or paper, brass?
6. what amount of powder do you use and what do you use for a wad?

i am thinking about making some blanks with some plastic shotshells that i fired once and was gonna attempt to reload with smokeless powder and buckshot.
