    I wonder if making some sort of form for the top to make it more bullet-like would improve accuracy.

    Has this renewed anyone else's interest in the Taurus Judge?

    Did you see him shooting from 100 yards? It was pretty accurate. One thing I thought of was making the front heavier than the back by filling the last half inch with wax, letting it harden, then filling the rest of the shell with shot and wax.

    This is a very old idea originally made from beeswax (which doesn't mess with powder like paraffin).

    It was used as quick loads for fowling pieces, and produced superior groups to loose shot.

    Yup! They call the video series "lost arts" It is great when old timers share such things, so they are not lost forever!

    Just had a thought... the wax slug is more efficient because the wax makes a seal on the bore, and no gas blows past it. Wax slugs probably have a greater range than deer slugs simply because of this. It would also protect the inside of the barrel from rust the way the wax on your car does. Nothing like a 300MPH polish followed by a 300 degree bake-on.

    yea, but he also said that the 6-7" grouping that he got was unusually accurate. Granted, at 100 yards, anything COM is good with a shot like that, but anything that makes it MORE accurate is better, right? Imagine getting a 1-2" grouping at that range. If I could get them dead accurate at 100yds, I'd never buy anything but a 12ga. and a 9mm. No need for a rifle if you can make your shotgun as accurate with more force.

    A lot of people don't like shooting many slugs because of the cost. This is cheap!
    I do, however, agree that reloading spent shells is the most practical application of this. I won't be cutting open many "store bought" shells!

    I guess it depends what you want to do with your ammo.
    For home defense I would never use something home-made because it might not go "bang" like factory ammo will and also because if you ever shoot someone with home-made ammo it's something that could be used against you.
    "Look at that freak who made his own ammo because factory stuff was not deadly enough for him".
    Using something who says on the box "for law enforcement and home defense use" may be a better option and will make you look more like a "good guy" in front of a jury.
    amen!!!!!
