    Do like Winchester does for their LongBeard turkey loads and squirt super glue in after they are dropped in shot cup. Breaks apart at forcing cone to act as the buffer. Tightest patterns I’ve ever shot have been those.

    Maybe hot glue would be a cheap alternative.

    That might have too much stretch. You need something brittle that will breakup small almost into powder.

    I know from experience that sealing rat shot in a 38 shell with regular glue and hot glue makes a mess in your cylinder and barrel

    I've been using the Southern Shine chips for several years and like them pretty well. I think they do a better job then the pins did. From your pictures the ships you have are a different shape and look a littler larger then what Southern Shine sells. There are a semi circular shape. They look like they are the excess cut from a round punch. Because of the size they tend not to get caught in flash holes etc. I'm very interested to see how these work out for you though. If they work well I'd be interested in getting some. I started with 5 pounds of the Southern Shine chips probably a good 5 years ago and over time you loose a little with each separation operation you do. I'm probably down to 2-2.5 pounds now and need to replenish.

    I had good results using #8 shot suspended in light oil as Glasier rounds in my Barrett way back when.

    I love when the delivery date magically changes. 893DA518-1F82-4490-BB9C-C932169D4682.png

    They came in today! They are huge too. Didn’t realize they would be quite this big compared to the other guys. They dwarf the other type stuff “hugely” lol

    I bet they work well on the outside of the cases but I doubt they’d get down in a 223 case really well. Doubt they’d pack in and bunch up like the pins as well. Dang sure won’t pack in and stick in a flash hole.

    testing tomorrow on some 223 cases.

    Let us know when you test them in 12ga hulls, they look perfect for that.

    They’re definitely an upgrade to the pins and definitely better than the stainless grit. I like them.
    After one hour of running. Some of this brass was super nasty.

    This is what fell out of two cases. Out of 10 that I picked up out of the bucket I averaged around 4 pins inside each case.

    Separating them from the cases was a breeze. A minute of spinning had them come right out.
