View Full Version : 12 Gauge Mini Shells

August 10, 2008, 06:18 AM
I have a winchester 1300 defender with a spec ops stock that gets used for deer hunting and home defense, for me the brenneke rifled slugs are very accurate out to 150yds, where i hunt that plenty good enough...for home defense i came across a company that produces "mini shells"

1 3/4 inches long in slug, shot, buckshot....so far the only guns that cycle these shells flawlessly is the 1300 and the FN police models, at least from what i read, and the 870s and mossys only need slight mods??

has anybody used these before?...the idea for hd was to load one pepper spray and approx 11 rounds behind it:rolleyes:

also i would think these rounds would be a little less abusive on the more petite individuals?

For what it's worth, the Agulia mini-shells do NOT cycle well in my Winchester 1300 or the 1200. They are, however, very good in a SxS coach gun. :)

I have seen them fed through an 870 with no modification flawlessly. The user indicated they worked well out of several pumps he had tried them in(500 and 535 maybe), but not out of his semi-auto(can't remember what it was). I really liked the idea for HD.

i have seen two sizes advertised by websites selling these rounds...1 1/2 inch and 1 3/4 inch... maybe a design change somewhere, and bad lots floating out there....what was the actual size of the ones that failed to work flawless... i'll probably waste 10 bucks anyways, just curious, it does make sense for hd rounds.........
