    Just met a old guy, 80 something and he told me they usto make out of 12g. He would put a #10 estes rocket in the shell with tungsten tig rod in it. "Would go through anything and blow up". Has anyone heard of such a thing? Or is he pulling my leg. Sounds crazy to me.
    Thanks.

    When he said this, was there burning incense, black lights, and a really comfy couch?


    I heard some crazy stories in that sort of environment. This reminds me of those stories.

    He's probably one of those that believe a 12 ga shell loaded with Rock Salt can hit a person over 50 feet away and penetrate clothing.

    But...but...it does. The old farmer that lived across from my grandparents said so, and that I'd feel it first hand if I kept taking stealing from his crops :bananadance:
