Oh he'll no!
I wouldn't try it either. I'm surprised at the results though. The resulting fire formed case was pretty cool.
while the video's like this are fun to watch I have to wonder how many are going to "just have to" run out and try this now themselves.
It's safer than most people think. You're not going to generate much pressure due to lack of resistance. The bullet is going to rattle down the bore.
Think shooting a 9mm in a 40 S&W or a 40 S&W in a 45 ACP.
These idiots give shooters a bad name. I can think of a dozen customers I hope don't see this.
This ranks a little ways down the list of idiocy and danger factor.
I can think of a few wildfires caused by tannerite stupidity would rank significantly higher even though the perceived danger (at the time) was much less.
You will never, ever contain wanton foolishness so don’t even start trying to blame a lone internet video for being some kind of cause to it.
And no, I’m not some kind of shill for Iraqveteran8888.
The video and article were already published. I didn't create them and I don't apologize for posting it. I simply said that I wouldn't want to try it. What others do is their own responsibility to enjoy or suffer consequences. That being said, I watched the video and didn't see what I was expecting.
I notice the single barrel shotgun is the old NEF type and quite thick. I just wonder if the results would have been worse had it been a thinner barrel like a modern semi auto. Maybe not. Too dangerous to find out anywhere close in proximity.
With a .729" bore and a .50" projectile I am not surprised at the result.
Mmmmm....if you file a little off of a 20mm it would fit......was just thinking it would fit the bore better...hmmmmm.....
HELL NO! DON'T DO THIS CRAP!
Just like shooting a 30-30 in a .410. I have seen that done firsthand. No I didn’t try it, and would not try this mess.
Never underestimate the power of stupidity. It can only drag you down.

I have heard of using 16 gauge shotshells fired in a 14 gauge Martini police/riot gun by just wrapping the case with a layer of tape.
Now that the 50 bmg is fireformed I wonder how a saboted bullet would work in the shotgun using that case?
Meh, i see no issue with trying it safely, but it's not the kinda question Im inclined to ask either.
I appreciate the disclaimer they put up front.
I would have liked to have seen "Doing stupid stuff so you don't have to"
I also think we understood the level of "intellect" we were about to see demonstrated when "Subscribe or we'll come to your town and shoot out street lights" appeared on the screen.
Has anybody Asked? WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO????
And I thought “everybody knows, you never go full retard...”
I have seen discussions about "Could you shoot a .50BMG out of a shotgun without blowing it up" floating around the past few months. Idle hands and all.
Recognizing that this was not all that dangerous because of the free space in the bore it still displays some degree of danger in that it gives some not so bright folks ideas of other types of experiments that could be a lot more problematic. That plus it serves no purpose makes me put a thumbs down on the execution of the idea.
There are a lot of these videos on YT and it seems they are either running out of idiotic things to do for views or trying to 'one-up' some other you-tuber'
edwin sarkissian is a good example..he is entertaining, I guess, but last video he threw a live hand grenade into the guts of an ATM, that still had money in it..
Too much isolation.
Like many others... I’ll pass on that. I’ll stick to shooting the ammo that the gun is made for, thank you.
My favorite numb skull you tuber was the guy who shot the pickup filled with Tannerite. When it exploded the door skin flew off and became a literal saw blade that whipped past the guy before he could even react. Eight inches to the right and that hunk of metal would have cut him in half like a deli slicer.
