Is it safe to fire paper shells in my semiauto Mag-10 Roadblocker?
I got a heck of a deal on some boxes of 3-1/2” # 4’s.

thanks - Dog

What makes you think they wouldn't be? There were plenty of paper shells around before the Mag 10 came along!

Our big four North American ammunition brands made the switch to plastic shells in the 1960s, so any paper magnum 10 shells are likely over fifty years old. If the boxes and shells are in good shape they may be more valuable as "collector items" t hen shooters

Shoot em but be sure to wear your glasses. The Mag 10 has a tendency to rip the case head with the extractor. Worse if you are left handed(me). I've shot plenty out of my Mag 10 and SP-10.
