Drone defense shotgun shells tested in action (VIDEO)

Collectors of shotgun shell curiosities, Taofledmermaus, undertook a test of the “Skynet Drone Defense” 12 gauge shell.

The shells are billed as being able to take down a multi-rotor or similar to end threats from illegal surveillance, aerial trespassing, and weaponized drones and use a Fiocchi high brass primed hull packed with a five-part projectile, each tied together with a string.

Spoiler alert: with the anti-drone rounds costing a hefty $7 a pop, ‘Tao found out that regular ole buckshot or turkey loads may have been a better (and cheaper) option for wayward quadcopters.
