Default Polymer clay shotgun slugs: good frangible range ammo?

Jeff and company from Taofledermaus test shotgun slugs made from baked polymer clay, with surprising results as far as accuracy and performance.

Another innovation in shotgun rounds. Amazing how shotguns have made a comeback and diversified for the new SD market. Something different every month or so. I've slung wax and wood (!) slugs. Much fun. A hunk of clay sounds like fun.

Well, Taofledermaus might be the You Tube channel for you. Jeff has done several videos on wax slugs and some wood slugs, but also weird foreign slugs (most of which work extremely well actually), Foster deer slugs, but also mercury experiments/demonstrations and slow motion video (how the channel started out until Jeff started doing gun stuff).

He even used to do a "you make it, we shoot it" deal where he'd test slugs made by viewers, but he's not taking any requests for that right now because he's back-logged on viewer requests.

I'd think that the polymer clay could be a good route for frangible rounds for like indoor ranges where only frangible/deformable ammo is allowed or preferred.
