CETME-Inspired Experimental Shotgun Slugs

This video documents my experiment with some custom shotgun slugs based on the concept of the CETME 7.92x41mm projectile. TheIdahoanShowIdaho was one of the last continental US states to be settled and, more so than some parts of the US, the culture of Idaho still retains a frontier spirit of self-reliance.  As host of TheIdahoanShow […]

The Gamespike Shotgun Slug Experiment

This video documents another experimental shotgun slug I came up with. I thought the flared base of the slug would provide stabilization, both from air drag and by acting as a flywheel when the round was fired through a rifled barrel or rifled choke tube, while the narrow core would provide low drag and good […]

Experimental Cruciform Shotgun Choke

As a follow-up to my oval-choke experiment, I tried making a shotgun barrel that tapers from a circular cross-section to a cross-shaped bore at the muzzle, as documented in this video. It didn’t end up working very well, but it was still an interesting experiment. TheIdahoanShowIdaho was one of the last continental US states to […]

Shotgun Slugs made from Compacted Dirt

This video documents my experiments with making shotgun slugs by compacting “loess” clay in a hydraulic press, mixed with a little powder coating powder to act as a binder. The slugs didn’t end up working very well, but it was an interesting experiment, and it is possible that something like this might find certain niche […]

Shooting Star Shotgun Slugs: Third Attempt

This video shows my third iteration on the “shooting star” shotgun slug concept. TheIdahoanShowIdaho was one of the last continental US states to be settled and, more so than some parts of the US, the culture of Idaho still retains a frontier spirit of self-reliance.  As host of TheIdahoanShow on YouTube, I endeavor to produce […]

Second Shooting Star Shotgun Slug Experiment

I modified my original “shooting star” slug mold in hopes of improving performance, and made a video about testing the modified slugs. TheIdahoanShowIdaho was one of the last continental US states to be settled and, more so than some parts of the US, the culture of Idaho still retains a frontier spirit of self-reliance.  As […]

First Shooting Star Shotgun Slug Experiment

This was the first iteration on my experimental “shooting star” shotgun slug design. It didn’t work very well, but it was still an interesting experiment.
