Exotic shotgun ammo refers to a specialized shotgun shell design that offers unique features and capabilities.
These exotic shotgun shells will often include pellets with unique shapes or configurations, such as spikes or incendiary rounds, as well as different types of projectiles, like rubber pellets or flechettes.
Many exotic shotgun shells have specialized applications, such as breaching rounds for door entry or less-lethal rounds for law enforcement, and offer increased range, accuracy, or stopping power compared to standard shotgun rounds.
It's important to note that the use of exotic ammo may be restricted or regulated in some areas due to safety concerns.
Additionally, exotic shotgun ammo differs from standard ammunition purchases because they're shipped separately and directly from the manufacturer. *Please allow extra time for shipping.
At Ammunition Depot, you'll find a wide variety of in-stock exotic shotgun ammo that includes practical and fun applications, including slugs, flechette ammo, and Dragons Breath shells.
About Dragons Breath Ammo
Although the true origins of Dragons Breath Ammo are still unclear, it was believed to have been developed in the mid-20th century as a movie industry special effects tool.
Dragons breath shells are primarily made by packing a mixture of chemicals and small magnesium flakes into the hull.
The mixture ignites when the round is fired, creating a stunning pyrotechnic display of sparks and flames that can shoot out to about 100 ft.
Typically chambered in 12 gauge 2 3/4" (18.5 mm x 69.9 mm), Dragons Breath ammo is not commonly used for hunting or self-defense but for entertainment or special effects.
Shells can be purchased online or in select gun stores nationwide. However, due to their potential to cause fires or injury, dragons breath shells are highly controversial and are illegal in some state jurisdictions - so check your state and local laws before purchasing.

Popular Exotic Shotgun Ammo Types
FLASHBANG SHELLS: Unlike standard shells, these don’t fire a projectile. However, they produce an intense flash of light accompanied by a 182dB sound that will disorient anyone without ear protection.
It’s arguable whether flashbang shells are effective in a tactical situation; they certainly accomplish their primary purpose and cause a lot of commotion.
INCENDIARY SHELLS: Available for 12 gauge, 20 gauge, and shotgun models, incendiary shells (also known as Dragons Breath) produce a bright spark or burst of flame upon firing.
Every Dragons Breath shell gives you a 4000 °F magnesium flame that extends anywhere from 100 to 300 feet outward.
FLECHETTE SHELLS: Flechette shells are packed with small, dart-like projectiles instead of traditional round pellets. These projectiles are designed to penetrate armor and are typically made of steel or other hard metals with greater effectiveness than standard shotgun rounds.
RUBBER PELLET SHELLS: Rubber pellet shotgun shells (also known as rubber buckshot or slugs) are a common type of less-lethal ammunition designed to incapacitate targets without causing severe injury or death.
Rubber pellet shells are generally used when lethal force is inappropriate, such as riot control or self-defense against animals.
