shot gun hulls
A shotgun shell is a self-contained cartridge often loaded with multiple metallic "shot", which are small, generally spherical projectiles. The shells consist of a paper or plastic tube mounted on a brass base holding a primer. The shot is typically contained in a small container inside the shell casing. Shot has traditionally been made of lead, but steel, tungsten or bismuth is frequently used due to restrictions on lead. A shotgun shell can contain a single, large projectile known as a shotgun slug. They can also be made with specialty non-lethal rounds such as beanbag rounds, and rubber. Shotguns have an effective range of about 45 meters. An old non-lethal round consisted of a shotgun shell loaded with rock salt, which could inflict very painful, but rarely deadly, wounds, and was popular for scaring away trespassers.Other rounds include:
Ferret rounds: rounds designed to penetrate a thin barrier (e.g. a car door) and release a gas payload.
Bolo rounds: two large lead balls attached by a wire.
Piranha rounds: shells full of sharp tacks.
Dragon's breath rounds: shells full of chemicals that burn when fired, and can ignite a flammable target at close range.Most shotgun shells are designed to be fired from a smoothbore barrel, but dedicated shotguns with rifled barrels are limited to lead slugs or sabot slugs as "shot" would be spread too wide by the rifling. A rifled barrel will increase the accuracy of sabot slugs, but makes it unsuitable for firing shot, as it imparts a spin to the shot cup, causing the shot cluster to disperse. A rifled slug uses rifling on the slug itself so it can be used in a smoothbore shotgun.
Hey everyone, new to this forum. I have been looking for .410 shells since my son got one last year and haven’t been able to buy a single box over the last year. We’ve been getting by borrowing from friends and family, but he’s really wanting to waterfowl hunt this year and just got done with...
Have approx 450 hulls, I'd say majority are good for reload. Have approx 500-700 wads, old but fine, and approx 200 wads old but brittle. Probly garbage but may be usable, I dont know.
Punt at $30 for all...happy to consider trades at a comparable fair value for: .45 acp or .223 / 5.56 ammo, 12...
