  • Best way to seal shotshells?

    Just got a five month old backorder of a case of Fiochi reduced recoil buckshot today. I notice that in the center of the crimp, there is a hole over 1/16" diameter in every shell. I can't imagine this being a good thing if caught in a rainstorm so any way to seal these without using something that'll gum up the works, I'd appreciate!

    Yeah. Just drop some candle wax in the holes.

      Yep. If you can find someone our age who just had a birthday party, get those little candles. If you are careful, you can get one drop at a time from them fairly fast, and they'll do 10 or so shells each, once you figure out the right angle to hold them at.

      And if you have a whole case to process, you'll figure it out!

        I'll be sure to use those trick ones that can't be blown out. I also find myself wondering just how many fingers I'll have burned by the time I do 200 shotshells. I just hope I don't burn down the house in the process!
