Here is a project Dave Fetters just finished.  He began with brass casings to which he added lead shot and sand.  He then made projectiles to fit.  The reproductions are (left to right) 30mm, 308, 50 cal, 30mm.

Amazing.  The GAU-8/A 30mm Gatling gun in the A-10 Thunderbolt can send 3,900 of those things toward a target in a mere 60 seconds.
