I seem to remember that Sir Samuel Baker, having run out of bullets for his muzzleloader, got out of a predicament with an angry quadruped in Ceylon with a handful of small change.

Just like in Young Guns 2. Best $1.80 Billy the Kid ever spent.

Silver does not retain energy well down range. Gold would work better. Flat disc are very poor at keeping a pattern. Up close you might get by but past 15 yards you are going to be in real trouble. But any hope is better than none when you either shoot what you have or run like hell.

How about three, four, or five pennies (cheaper than dimes) stacked with over shot wads in between until the shell is full. Pennies might have to go in an eight gauge but it would be an interesting experiment. Will pennies fit in a ten gauge shell?

A load of dimes is a crappy shotgun load.
A dime has no positive ballistic qualities.
The Mythbusters show proved the load worthless against a pig carcass.
