Did a quick search and didn't see this posted yet.

Guys make Silly-Putty Shotgun rounds.


Would never use for anything, especially their home defense opinion at the end, but it's cool all the things shotgun ammo can turned into.

Here's the vid.

One more indication that ANYTHING fired from a shotgun - including blanks - can be lethal.

His channel has a whole array of odd shotgun projectiles.

The wax and magnets were brutal.

I have read that idea before...more than once....I wonder, though, whether it is actually true. No disrespect intended.

To simulate silly putty's high velocity affect non-lethally, have someone get a wad of it and let them throw it at your bare back as hard as they can.

I'll bet it hurts and acts like a solid at 50mph... probably at 1000 fps also.

History is your friend...




Canister shot metal containers filled with small iron balls, stones, glass and nails had much the same idea as using grapeshot cannonballs. This was specifically designed to kill sailors on the decks of enemy vessels. -- http://angela-michelle.hubpages.com/hub/Pirates-Weapons-Through-the-Ages

And what worked for big black powder guns worked for smaller ones too. Many early accounts of blunderbusses describe them as being loaded with all sorts of scrap.

These guys made an improvised buckshot round from a cheap birdshot case and ten .22 LR bullets, oriented nose forward in the shell. It obliterated a clay block and sent chunks of clay everywhere.
