Custom Aluminum Turbine Shotgun Slugs -Testing




Published on Apr 8, 2015

” We test out some aluminum, .70 caliber shotgun slugs that were CNC’d for us by Tim Hamilton. Tim is a prototype machinist and has access to some very sophisticated machine tools. Since so many viewers have told us that many of the rounds we have tested would have worked had they had some rifling or fins to stabilize them, Tim decided to see if this was true.

  Tim has other ideas like mini shotgun arrows. Just amazing stuff.
Here is the video on how he made these turbine rounds. But check out some of his other videos too!
TACTICAL G-CODE is now the name of his channel:

Ever Wondered What Might Happen If You Burned 28,000 Rounds Of Ammunition In A Bonfire?




Published on Nov 28, 2012

” The Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute (SAAMI), the standards-setting organization for the industry, has provided this video to fire departments nationwide to help firefighters better address the realities of fires in which sporting ammunition is present.”

    Long time readers may be familiar with this video as we have posted similar videos from SAAMI in the past , perhaps even this one , but we were unable to locate a reference to it in our archives . Anyway , the subject bares repeating as it is comforting to know that large quantities of stockpiled ammunition pose no great explosive hazard . Preppers can rest easy .
