WHY LOAD YOUR OWN SHOTSHELLS?
Factory ShotShell Ammunition is expensive and quite often hard to find.
Plastic capsules (especially in light revolvers) can move outward during from recoil inertia and may cause your cylinder to lock up.

You may find that larger shot size Buckshot, 4,5,6, etc. may produce wider shot spreads and inconsistent results.
