New Turkish 6 mm Center Fire Shotshell

A new 6 mm center fire shotshell for subcaliber adapters recently showed up in the Turkish market. It is intended for shotguns chambered for the 9 mm center fire shell, that is quite popular in that country. It is constructed using 209 type primer inserted inside a hollow plastic tube.

I would be nervous about blow by between plastic tube and primer.
Primer blow by will erode the boltface in short order and was a serious problem in black powder days with poor quality primers and worn cases…

But i do like the ingenuity.

@Fede I sent you a DM.

Whoa those are neat!
