  1. I make 2" tall shells with Lee key drive slugs (7/8 oz). Using Winchester Super Target. Seems to work alright so far. Short can be beautiful.

  2. Although I like the video, there is no way I can show it to my daughter. She would get traumatized by the damage done to Tenderheart Bear.

  3. Interesting video guys. I am not that well educated on all this, but have examined and played with a fair amount of custom minis. The aguila birdshot round tells the story IMHO on how to go with minis…a cup wad. I tried numerous rounds, with a variety of shot sizes, and with a fully choked barrel and cylinder bore barrel (20"). At 8 yards, nothing kept the pattern tight as well as the Aguila cup wad did. As the shot sizes went to #4 buck and larger, the patterns were as tight with just the gas block. As for power, not my thing. I think the ones I tested were 24 grain? Green and Red dot. None I tested was smaller than 1.25" crimped.

  4. So I recently got a smooth barrle single shot shotgun and I was wondering if it would be safe to shoot slugs out of it?. Because I wanted to use it for deer hunting and don't want to ruin my first gun haha.

  5. Aguila mini shells + xrail attachment on a semi auto Benelli as fast as you can into ballistics gel… You're welcome 1 million views by tomorrow

  6. Hey Taufledermaus, just subscribed. this is a cool idea. Would you consider following up with a video or series of videos about developing the shortest buckshot load possible for a Mossberg 590?

  7. Lol, Your friend sounds like Buffalo Bill from silence of the lambs! XD Next time You do a video together, Have him say "Put the lotion in the basket"

  8. Chambering works better when you use the OPSol Mini-Clip. I use shells made by Aguila (hard to find) in my Mossberg Shockwave and am sure they will do the job well in a home invasion situation (less than 15 yards). I hope that wasn't a grandkids teddy bear that you murdered. PETA and Feinstein are now looking for both of you!

  9. “How low can you go?
    Can you go down low?
    All the way to the floor?
    How low can you go?”

    That song was playing in my head ‘cause of the title

  10. How does case (well, shell) lenght influence accuracy/spread? I can understand lower power due to a smaller or more compact powder load, but isn't accuracy determined almost exclusively by bullet design (i.e. aerodynamics) and barrel?

  11. Aren't carebear toys worth a bunch of money now? If that's an original, you might have just blasted a $200 carebear that could have been cleaned up and sold
    .

  12. 1 3/4 Aguila 12 Gauge Minishells work fine in a KSG, they are not much bigger than what you are shooting and are great for home defense.

  13. @TAOFLEDERMAUS Check out king of randoms videos on his proto putty, would be a cheap and easy way to make less than lethal silicone rounds, maybe load them inside of a soft plastic fishing squid?

  14. I subbed….dont suppose you know how to make the below shotgun shell trimmer? I would love to buy one….but the guy does not seem to respond to comments and I cant find them for sale anywhere? Any ideas on either making one or buying one? I'm mainly looking to make Aguila mini shells types if you know anything about the proper loading for those? Much appreciated!

  15. take a 3 1/2 inch magnum. cut the red part of by 3/4 or little less and crazy stuff. use copper ball barring or a commercial round that fit nicely . have fun

  16. I feel like a BB gun would have a higher velocity though. The first 1 inch shell looked like the shot was thrown in the slow motion camera .

  17. Poor bear …. It's lucky I didn't get to it first or I would have put a hole in its ass area , and fucked every bit of stuffing out of it then after all the stuffing comes out … I will fill it back up and put the stuffing back in it make look good and then I will fuck the ever-loving stuffing out of it all over again , make it look good again give it some b** I hate

  18. If you watch the serise on Netflix calded supernatural and you remember the giant tedy bear that shot him self and his stuffing blew out the let me know and leave a like

  19. The Opsol will work with these shells typically, but ejection is a problem in the Mossys. Also, we have made 1" "micros" that are actually pretty lethal….

  20. Don’t give them ideas. In Germany they now want to minimise the magazine size to 10 rounds of the smallest possible round that is designed for the gun.
