Xacto Blade Shotgun Load

Taofledermaus does something terrifying:

Xacto-Blade-Shotgun-Loadhaha so awesome.  Although a lot of the stuff he does turns out to be way less effective than slugs or birdshot the psychological effect of flying razor blades is crazy.

As I said in the comments on this YouTube video – “The only way you can one-up this is if you fill a shotgun shell with poo + AIDS.”

  1. should have used wire instead of string ;)

    1. The industrial thread worked with other objects before. Once we were out there shooting the damned things, we realized the thread wasn’t holding up but we didn’t have any wire, just some electrical tape.

      1. So, today we learned that Exacto blades are excellent at cutting industrial thread. Hmmmmmm.

  2. What if you stabilized the blades? Either by making the rear heavier or making a drag tail on them.

    Also, they need to make this work in a semi auto shotgun.

  3. Yes, most of the objects we shoot just plain suck as a practical or effective projectile. But it’s fun to try things that viewers ask us to try. So many channels out there seem to forget they have people commenting on their videos. I enjoy the interaction with viewers and I get many good, very imaginative ideas from them. Thanks Mike for posting my video in giant form. lol

    1. I enjoy watching your videos.

      I think we all know the most effective projectiles are lead balls in varying sizes, but it’s always fun to experiment.

  4. cool results just the same…..:D
    have you tried some jig heads?

    I’d like to see three or four .308 150-170gr bullets shoved in a shotgun shell. I bet it would be rather effective, although the projectiles would tumble like crazy.

  6. well if they haven’t tried jig heads I’m gonna…. lead balls casted in fish hooks??….that would be some real scary shit ……;)
