    A new .50 cal shotshell...???

    So, one of the ways that ATF attacks shotguns that they don't like is with the "destructive device" label as the definition thereof includes anything over .50 cal.

    So, what if we developed a detachable mag fed shotgun based around a new shotshel with a .50 cal bore?

    Since it would be a new round we could make it high pressure, rimless, and we could assess what material to make the shells from.

    Just a thought.

    Is this in anticipation of issues with box fed semi-auto shotguns on the regulation front?
    I just did two lines of powdered wig powder, cranked up some Lee Greenwood, and recited the BoR. - Outlander Systems

    Yep, absolutely right!

    It would prevent them from ruling it a Destructive device and reduce the ability to call it unsporting.

    Also, a new case design would allow higher pressures, and better feeding (no rim).

    No thanks...

    Does anybody really want a box-fed .410 shotgun? Because that's what it sounds like you're talking about.

    On the other hand, if I wanted a box-fed .50cal, then I'd go .50Beowolf or whatever.
