How to Make Your Own .45 ACP. Shot Cartridges for Snake Country

Packing that .45 ACP pistol in the back country this summer?

Why not load up some .45 ACP shot cartridges for those pesky poisonous snakes.

Watch this video and you too will know how to load up your own  .45 ACP  Shot Cartridges.

The .45 ACP cartridge is a great heavy caliber that will launch a large diameter solid bullet with quite a punch. For smaller targets it just might be too much bullet. What you need is a miniature shotgun shell.

Why not make these .45 ACP shotshells yourself with the help of Ammo Channel? Start off with .308 Winchester rifle casings. Run them through trim and expanding dies and do the other specific steps the video explains completely.

Presto! You have .45 ACP shotshell cartridges that you made at home ready for those poisonous snakes you might meet this summer on the trail.
