Little stubby self defense rounds. So that you can increase the capacity of black stocked pump shotguns

After you modify the carrier not to try to pick up two because they are so short

Ah, I see. Another bit of engineering marvel. I guess that leads me back to your second question; why?

The why? Not really sure. I bought 10 boxes for $5.00 each as they intrigued me. They had come out of an estate.
I did shoot a few boxes and they have pretty low recoil. Shot some hand thrown Eurasian dove we trapped and they seemed pretty effective.

Rick's comment re Mag capacity, and you're picture, with Spanish on it, makes a bit of sense to me now. A friend had two lightweight pumps of some Italian make, with somewhat short barrels, and full length magazines. The were identical, except one was 28ga and the other was 12ga.
The explanation was they were for one of the South American bird shooting events. Argentina as I recall. For whatever reason, all I could envision was shooting pigeons in Trafalgar Square.

Those are a new on one me. Never even heard of them. I like the hand-thrown Eurasian dove idea!

An unlimited supply of them and they are a secondary bird to the pigeons my hunting partner traps.
They are a fun way to shoot a Lot of my sxs and try different loads, especially vintage shells that I buy.
