38 SPL Shotshells .. Loaded OR Empty!

Recommended Posts

We've been searching everywhere for shotshells for a 38spl.  We have the reloader equipment to make our own, but the only place I've been able to find the empty capsules is online and the shipping is insane.  

 

Has anybody seen any floating around locally? (Knox/Blount/Sevier County areas?)

I load my own 38 shotshells and don't use any "capsules".

Powder, cardboard overpowder wad, shot, over shot wad, elmers glue to hold in the wad, dry, shoot.

Hmm.. I hadn't thought about that before.. do you glue in both pieces of cardboard or just the one over the shot?  How well do they hold up to loading/unloading/handling/carrying, etc?

Glue only the over shot wad. They are not super durable with Elmers Glue. If you find another glue, they could be as durable as a factory load. Some people use hot glue on top.

Capsules do give one more shot capacity.
