Any interest in a 45acp shot shell thread?
If so I can do some and post with pics.

The thread would be 2 parts one with the right RCBS dies. And one with dies from other sets most may have anyway.
I have to get some 308 rifle brass and clean it. Then do some and take pics doing it. They are done the same just regular dies substituted for the real ones.

Lotta difference in range and density between shot sizes and barrel lengths but I’ve tried from 6-9 shot from a Taurus tracker 4 inch barrel and model 29-3 with the *almost 8 inch* barrel and 8 shot in the smith is a good kill at upwards of 20 feet. The 9 shot patterned more densely at my 8 foot minimum...cuz all the snakes I run across seem to be the flying spitting chupacobras...

I am working on this Thursday I cleaned the cases. Friday I made the cases up "Cut, Sized and formed them. And took pictures while doing so.
Still, have to load some and crimp and take pictures. Maybe I will post it as 2 parts?

I loaded some in 38 special years ago. Couldn't get a good pattern past about 10 feet. I think it had something to do with the rifling in the barrel. It spun the capsule and threw shot all over the place.

Way back when the military had them made for the Thompson. They were called M15. That way you could fend for your self and shot small game to survive with 5he Thompson or 1911. I was also looking for the NRA write up before posting the how to. As it has info about it. Such as load data etc,

Update. I Was going to finish up the stuff and post. I have the 1st part done with pictures but still need to load them to do part 2. I was in a bad fight with a chain link fence and lost. It hit me in multiple places and then just stood there
