Default flechette

Fallinghunter or whatever that German name is, and I, tested some Flechette 12-gauge rounds. We fired them at wood, cardboard, a stack of telephone books, and some soft body armor.
The results were not very impressive.
The little darts did NOT stabilize, and some hit the target sideways.
The spread of the group was extreme. At 50 feet you could expect one single dart to hit a bad guy in the chest. Maybe another dart might hit one arm or one leg somewhere.
They didn't penetrate worth a damn.
Even a standard-velocity .22LR round was way harder-hitting and deeper penetrating.

What he ^ said. That was The Most Disappointing Ammunition I have EVER used. If I had a choice of someone shooting at me with 12 guage flechettes at 20 yards and another with .22 shorts in a rifle, I'd run from the guy with the .22

I wondered about that, but what about at 10 yards? Not much beats some buckshot, but I thought it was interesting.
When I was a kid, a friend of mine shot his big brother with an emptied out shell filled with a wad of wet toilet paper. It scared the crap out of me and left the biggest welt on his brothers leg. Don't ask me how it worked, but I saw it happen.

I'm not gonna lie... when I get a shotgun one of the first things I'm going to do is get one of those flamethrower-type rounds and go find some really wet land to shoot it on at night

we did the testing at 15 and 7 yards, if I remember correctly. At seven yards birdshot would probably have been just as effective . The trouble is that with the flechettes as loaded in a 12 gauge, that the individual flechettes are far too light to retain much energy and the total payload isn't very impressive. If someone were to design efficient flechettes, I think they'd have to each be about 1/4 of the bore and shaped like elongaged footballs with tails streaming behind them.

One round that I'd like to see be designed is a combination "slug+shot". What I envision is a slug that has been deeply scored until it resemble one pie stacked atop another with each pie scored into 4 wedge-shaped slices. It would stay together during the flight, but hitting any resistance would break apart the scoring and send the sharp wedges flying.

Flying lead pies? Wedges that take their own unpredictable wound paths upon entry?
Evil! Postitively wicked and depraved, I tell you.
But I like it.

I've seen this product before, but can't find it again. On the bright side, you can buy some as soon as you figure out who makes them.
