OK, OK, OK, PM me your addy. Oh, is it OK if they have notches filed in the rims? The guy I got 'em from wanted them all indexed in the chamber the same way.

I shoot and reload .45-90 and have a few hundred cases.
I am now curious to know what you are up to. Do not blow yourself up, and let us know how it goes.

MM Wright has generously offered to send me the cases I need.
I am desperately trying NOT to blow myself up. I want a couple foraging rounds for my takedown Marlin 1895. I am going to try to trim 45-90 cases to a overall length similar to a loaded 45/70 and start there using an inverted gas check to cap the shot. 8-10 grains of unique with a trimmed 410 shot cup. Dunno if it will work well enough or not. Some say it works fine and others say the donut in the middle of the pattern is too big to be effective. I always was the kid that had to touch the stove to see if it was hot.

I've got a 458 punch designed to cut cardboard wads. I wonder if I could glue one of those over the end.
I haven't played with shotshells nearly as much as I would like.
What size shot are you going to use? #9?

One of the ideas was 8 or 9 but I have a box of mixed fine shot that I am looking at using. Also a recommendation was made to load a round ball in with the shot but since I am in an experimenting mood I was wondering about a hot glue bullet placed in among the shot. Some suggest a card wad I am gonna start with a GC but looking for patterns that work. I typically get a trip to the range 2 or three Tuesday’s a month on my way home from work so this could keep me busy the rest of the summer and fall.

Anything that is big and light weight (hot glue bullet, for example) will put a great big hole in the middle of your erstwhile pattern. Ideally you want something that will allow the shot to penetrate or at worst go around easily (edgewise, hopefully) , disturbing the shot column as little as possible. I used to use shredded paper wadded up and tamped in tight. An over shot card held by a slight crimp should work well. Some will use waterglass to stick the overshot card to the cartridge. Load it up, insert the overshot card, dab waterglass around the edge. Some will use good ol' white glue, for that matter. IIRC the waterglass has the added benefit of providing a bit of water resistance.

Well, if the results are not satisfactory, then you will have an excuse to buy a combination rifle/shotgun! :lol:
