Is it possible to shoot a .50 BMG steel core projectile out of a shotgun?
TAOFLEDERMAUS, Wide Open Spaces video contributor and ammo experimenter extraordinaire, has rigged up some of these improvised shotgun rounds to try out.
Witness what happens when a .50 BMG steel core projectile is shot out of a shotgun?
Taofledermaus always has some interesting home brewed ammunition to try out. This is certainly the case with this experimental shotgun shell.
Loaded up with a .50 BMG steel core projectile in a homemade sabot casing, this projectile looks quite interesting. When fired, the projectile actually flips end over end through the air. Does it hit the target? Only if you have a big target like this old stop sign. That steel core blew a sideways hole clean through it.
