Hey guys .. I also took a few shots with my pocket thumper ! :) shot at some shotgun shells around 35 ft away .. they were about 2 feet apart or so so the distance grew a bit with each shot .. I was using 8mm steel and some green .72 gzk green thanks for looking guys !

Awesome shooting!!!

I can't help but thinking what would happen if you shot at the primer of live rounds :nono: :iono:
I'd worry it might shoot back at you. If not in a gun, I'm told shells shoot backwards since the bulk of the weight of the shell is now in the front (the shot) so the path of least resistance is out the back. I know when you put .22lr in an oven, they shoot backwards. (Mythbusters)

In a gun, the back of the shell is supported so the expanding gas has to (mostly) exit out the front.

Maybe if there was a way to support the rest of the shell so it couldn't move? Now I'm curious.

Someone with more of physics background might be able to confirm or deny though.

Yup! Definitely a very dangerous thing to even consider, most likely the shell would be coming right back at ya! :slap:
