    Any responsible reloader loads by the book,you start increasing powder charges past the max recommended without knowing what your doing and you can blow your gun up and possibly seriously injure yourself or bystanders,but there were times I would load just a primer and seat a wad in a shell and shoot my ex wifes knick knacks off the shelves until I got caught doing it one day

    OOOooo...It wouldn't be very wise to go about altering either loaded shotgun shells or monkeying with the load itself. Shotguns operate at low pressure and don't generally have the reserve of strength that a rifle or handgun has. Other than replacing the shot in a few .410 shells with BBs when I was a kid and replacing the shot with .44 caliber round balls in a 10 gauge shell when I was a teenager (don'cha dare do this at home kiddies) I've not fooled around much with shotgun shells.

    Well...there have been a few additional pranks conducted using loose shotgun shells but they don't bear mentioning on a public forum.
