Improvised Shotgun Slugs

Fishing sinkers, fishing sinkers with Drywall screws, .69 caliber musket ball, jury rigged into shotgun shells:

These guys have balls of steel. Very interesting stuff!

This video is from the same guys that brought us the lost art of “cut shells” last week.

Side by side with a red dot. Want.

I’m not sure which is more effective than the other, but i want the superglued ones and the musket ball ones just because of how big that lump o lead is. If it doesn’t kill you, it will shatter the crap out of whatever bones it may make contact with.

…. And why would it be dangerous to cycle ones loaded with that musket ball? It looks solid enough to withstand being cycled in anything.

The younger kid talking in the videos is a veteran of the armed forces, I do think he was a Mortarman with the Army, served in Iraq.

I’m pretty sure that man’s beard is strong enough to contain any shotgun KaBoom.

Saw these vids when it first came out. I was already intrigued by his earlier work especially the whole stripping a mosin down and his thoughts on the K31. He does impressive work even if he has a slight bent in some of his vids (which I don’t mind, he and I swim in the same waters politically).

If you can find it, he has a whole video on freezing stuff with dry ice or something and he froze a flower and shattered it. Definately a keeper to subscribe to youtube, alongside Corridor Digital and Freddie Wong.
