Aguila Minishell shotshells are only 1-3/4" long, and greatly increase the capacity of pump-action shotguns. They work great in Winchester 1300 shotguns, though other pump guns may not cycle reliably without modification. Perfect for use as low-recoil ammunition for single-shot or double guns as well. Ideal for recoil-sensitive shooters. Loaded to SAAMI specs, this Minishell slug load is recommended for target shooting and small game. Designed specifically for smooth bore barrels but can also be used in rifled choke tube barrels or fully rifled barrels.

Notes from Aguila on Shotgun Modifications to use Minishells:
First of all, any SAAMI/CIP approved 12ga shotgun may fire minishells, be it side-by-side, over-and-under or pump action; however, the latter type will not cycle them flawlessly. The out-of-the-box shotgun that we have tested cycling minishells very well, is the Winchester M1300 18" Defender. Winchesters 1897 seems to like the shorter rounds, however not as much as the Winchester 1300. We still have to test the Winchester 1887.

MOSSBERGS 500/590s will cycle minishells pretty well once the shooter acquires a "feeling" as to how to pump the action; however, this will not prevent the occasional jam. To further solve the problem, we have lengthened and widened the little short metal bar (shell elevator), which catches the round to be subsequently fed to the ramp and chamber. This modification will not prevent you from firing regular size shot shells. The other modification that would decisively help in the proper cycling, would be to install the ejector in a more forward position to catch the spent shorter shell and eject it, before it may flip and cause jams. However, we DO NOT recommend you to do this, because you will most likely no longer be able to fire regular size shells.

Any competent gunsmith should be able to perform the modification to the elevator described above.

REMINGTONS 870s seem to require a more involved modification, which we have never attempted. We have received calls from clients stating that they have tried our minishells in their 870s with excellent results, and that they did not understand why we have always mentioned the potential cycling problems. To this, we would like to state once more that minishells will not cycle flawlessly in regular pump action shotguns, no matter how well some customers are able to cycle them. Again, the Winchester 1300 Defender would seem to be the one cycling minishells best.

We do not know of any semi-automatic shotguns functioning with minishells.

    Review by Just me

    I have wanted to buy some more of these mini shotshells and they seem totally unavailable anywhere. I too have the Keltec and these shells do work flawlessly in this double feeder tube pump. Great gun to have in a DemoKrap blue state with Anti Second Amendment hell bent desires/yearnings.

    I would just like to see these available.

  • A few questions about these mini-shells
    Review by Paul Velte (San Marcos, TX)

    First, is it of no concern that most guns are chambered for 2 to 3" shells? It would seem a big slug rattling down the chamber toward the smaller bore would tend to tear it up over time. Second, how can a rifled slug be fired in a rifled barrel? I always thought the two were mutually exclusive. If I use a rifled barrel, I use sabot slugs... SELWAY ARMORY Paul, We can not say for sure that these would not cause wear on a normal shotgun chamber the slug is in the chamber for such a short time it is unlikely to contact the walls. You should never fire rifled slugs in a rifled barrel. Rifled slugs are designed for smooth bore barrels and will damage rifled barrels. These shells do have trouble cycling in some guns.

  • Works perfect in the correct gun.
    Review by Luc Chartrand (La Quinta, CA)

    These are the best (and smallest) short shells out there. They work flawlessly in my Keltec KSG. I have never had a single mis-fire. 24 rapid rounds in a row with no issues. Multiple times. People try to use mini shells in guns that were not designed to handle them. The slugs also seem to be some of the most accurate I've tried. They're right on target at long shotgun distances. The KGS has a rifled barrel and does not have an issue with the riffled slugs. I like mixing them up with 3 inch slugs in the KSG. I then let my “know it all” shooting buddies give it a try. It keeps them on their toes and they don't ask to shoot my gun as often.
