Nothing like a 300MPH polish followed by a 300 degree bake-on.
    Yup! Did you see him show the bore of that shotgun afterwards?



    yea, but he also said that the 6-7" grouping that he got was unusually accurate.
    I must have missed that! I'll check that out when I get a chance.


    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.
    What did you think of my idea?

    I don't know enough about physics, but I would think that if you weighted it unevenly without reshaping it, you'd wind up having a round that tumbles. Either that or it would fragment due to the uneven consistency.

    Just my non-expert opinion.

    as for whether they are legal... buckshot is legal... deer slugs are legal... buckshot slugs are... I don't think they are specifically illegal because it would count as a self-loaded round. They aren't specifically legal though.

    I just know that most slugs are designed to be heavier in the front

    they're also shaped aerodynamically. I really don't know enough about ballistic physics to answer that, I was just guessing.

    Well, I got a chance to fire off the 10 wax slugs that I made yesterday. Unfortunatly, ever single one of them behaved as a regular target load. I'm thinking the scented candle wax contains way too much oil to hold up to the blast.

    The good news though, the range smelled great!

    Next time I'm out and about I'm going to find some gulf wax and see if that will hold up better.

    you can see where the wax slug hit the rest of the holes were from a .22

    What are those made of? About what distance did you shoot them from?

    its made of thin steel. it shot one handed within 5 yards with a 18 inch barrel i would have shot from farther away but I didnt have a buttstock on my 12 gauge.
