Taofledermaus' Vapor-Trail Shotgun Slug

You can always count on YouTuber Taofledermaus for new, interesting, and/or random shotshell creations. This time he took another shot at creating a shotgun round that would leave a visible vapor trail, utilizing the bulb of a transfer pipette to contain the liquid.

How would you guys create a vapor trail?

Oh, I don’t have to add the “do not try this at home” disclaimer, do I?

    That brings up an interesting question. How about someone making an encapsulated birdshot round. Something strong enough to withstand being fired but that would deliver the entire load of shot to the target with practically zero spread.

      @Avid Fan Sort of a frangible round. That's pretty much what this is. The liquid just had some wonky effects, but using just shot would have stayed encapsulated.

    Why can't someone do this for duck hunters? Make a non-toxic, non-flammable tracer round for a shotgun..?
