    Not done it, but as primers are brass basically they'd be shorter ranged than lead; Should work but the pattern might be spottier than with fine lead pellets (as primers are larger than #8 or #12 shot by a noticeable margin) and so the payload would have fewer projectiles. Cheap tho.

    The original article used pieces of tig welding tungsten, just about the hardest thing you can easily get. It made a real mess out of chickens and would get you sued.

    Piano wire in varying gauges works like a charm also. Especially the wrapped wire ones... stacked in a CCI capsule makes mashed taters.
