What are they packed with?
Anybody play around with the new federal shorty shotshells?
I bought a case of them to mess with.
Quite fun to shoot!
I bought an opsol adapter for my moss 500 and all went well for the feeding for the first two tubes full. Then the third time I loaded up I had issues with ejection on every shell. I'm thinking it might be the ejector, at least in part. My shotgun is old and worn.
The shells are also slightly lighter than normal shells so less mass to throw clear of the gun.
I like the concept though; it kinda reminds me of the the whole intermediate round thing. = less ammo weight and a smaller overall size so you can carry more ammo at the cost of some performance.
Ran through two tubes full without a hiccup.
But the ejection is more related to the wear on my shotgun. Because I've had other shells not eject reliably before. It's a problem that I've had here and there for a while now. Trying to fix it now.
As far as a semiauto shotgun.
They would have to make a purpose built one. The gas could be tuned, but there is too much space in there. These shells are basically equivalent to trap loads as far as pressure goes. You can get a saiga to function on trap loads if you tune it right.
