Sounds like a dangerous, irresponsible practice to me, but if you want to risk bulging your barrel or a trip to the ER, go ahead and give it a try. If wax gets down in the barrel and dries, it can increase pressures higher in conjunction with adding more weight to the shot payload.

My suggestion is to by slugs or buckshot instead of potentially dangerous/litigious 'improvised munitions' like cut shells and wax-filled shotshells, or buying insanely expensive exotic specialty ammo like bolo, or Dragon's Breath. Shotguns aren't a toy or a video game.
