    1st I have to say I have never loaded shotgun ammo.
    so here is my question

    is there any reason to be using a wad or similar in a slug gun?
    I am building a "shotgun" bolt action rifle using a rifled shotgun barrel
    I have loaded lost of pistol ammo and I cant see why shotgun solids cant be loaded in the same manner as pistol loads. why all the wads and stuff.
    thanks in advance for the education
