Date of Patent: Nov. 8, 1994


A novel cartridge for conventional shot gun and other weapons, suitable for training and other applications, and containing a thin walled ball encapsulating a substance to be ejected upon the ball hitting the target, provided with a folded fan enclosure for the ball and its holder within the cartridge which, upon expulsion of the ball holder fan unit upon firing, causes the ball to separate and continue to the target, while the folded fan segments spring open in free flight into an air resistant disc and then pinwheel with the holder harmlessly to the ground within a short distance of the gun.
