Folks, from one of our favorite sources: Gun Review: Intrepid Tactical Solutions RAS-12 Shotgun and Shotshells - The Firearm Blog

I vaguely remember back in the 80s there was a brief attempt to import aluminum and plastic shotgun shells from Argentina. Ran into import troubles. As I recall it was an aluminum hull with a rounded plastic cap and external O-rings to seal. Rounds used standard primers and could be loaded with a simple priming tool and dip measures.

Interesting....They got their history wrong. The modern shot shell as we know it today, was invented by Charles Daw in 1866. The design was a genesis of an idea that goes all the way back to the very first metalic cartridge gun; the Pauly gun of 1812. Which incidentally was a 20 bore (modern 20 bore shell will drop right into the chamber) centerfire reloadable cartridge.

Like these brass cannon's casings here....from The Michael Bane Blog

and I love this quote in relation to rifle in the article..

When I finally got to shoot a 4-Bore a few years ago at one of the Vintager World Cups it was everything I hoped (or imagined) it would be. The double-barreled 4-Bore didn't so much recoil as alter the entire space-time continuum...one instant I was standing in one place; the next instance, a different place. The entire universe shifted a couple of degrees...like being in an episode of Dr. Who.
