Billy the Kid really killed a Deputy with a load of silver dimes fried from a SXS shotgun. It was probably less than 7 yards distance. For some reason I never figured out, some guys would pour birdshot out of a shell and replace it with carpet tacks. I never worked a shooting where anyone was shot with carpet tacks but I'm sure it happened. All kinds of junk has been fired out of guns. The idea that some how the projectile might get wedged in the barrel is very improbable. If it's smaller than the bore and moving at 1200 fps it's going to exit.
