Start a fire with a shotgun shell
Spent shotgun shells on a rainy day
If you are in a hunting area where hunters have left plastic shotgun shells laying around. They work well in a rain storm or wet environment to get a fire started. The shell lights easily and burns very hot and will ignite most damp tinder.
I keep a couple in my fire starting kit. I was out working on my survival skills when a rain storm came through and everything was soaked. I had caught some fish for a meal but had a hard time getting a fire started until I found a couple of shotgun shells. I had a fire in no time and enjoyed a nice meal.
When I was a kid in Scouts we made fire starters using shotgun shells, kitchen matches and melted wax. When you needed a fire you pulled one out of your pocket and struck it on a rock to light it and it was water proof because of the wax over the top of the shell and match heads. This is what gave the idea to get a fire started to cook my fish that rainy day.
Note: Don't breath the fumes from the burning plastic.
Thanks for your time and effort.
