Well, ours uses a 3 inch barrel, but the same principle applies... I cut a bunch of circles out of a piece of corrugated cardboard, about 1/4" less in diameter than the barrel. Then wrap lightweight posterboard/chipboard around it to form a cylinder and hotglue it together. Load it up with paintballs and slide it down the barrel. Voila! If you need to aim downward for some reason though, try packing a paper towel down on top of the canister, it should blow out upon firing without interfering with the grapeshot too much. With enough velocity/arc, they'll break on anything fairly solid, like walls, roofs, bunkers, your opponents heads, etc...

You can also do the same thing more cheaply by just finding cups that fit inside the barrel, but we used the cardboard sabot method in order to make bigger canisters to fit a whole 100 paintballs.

Cut a 2" diameter circle of cardboard. Now cut out two "squares" of SOFTSIDE cardboard. These will require your own experimentation to get the measurements down correctly. Using hot glue or super glue, glue the two 'squares' to form the wall of the sabot, but NOT TO EACH OTHER!!! Then using another strip of softside cardboard, measure the circumfrence of the sabot and wrap it around the sabot. This will keep the two 'halves' of the sabot together for loading. Trim down any excess off of the circle of cardboard on the bottom, so that the 'wrap' may slide off of the end easily. Then load the sabot with you're preferred ammunition (paintballs as it may be). To secure the paintballs in the sabot, cut out some foam (styrofoam or a soft cushioning foam) to fit the front end of the sabot and insert to hold the ammunition in place. The sabot should fit snugly into the barrel if your measurements are precise. If you are interested in making this kind of ammunition, PM me and I can send you some more precise specs.

we used to use the paper dixie cups in our launchers back in the 80s. place the cup in the muzzle untill it stops. then cut 3 or 4 slits from the the top of the cup (part where you drink from) fill it with 30 or 40 balls and pack with tp or paper towels. make some kind of ramrod to push it down the barrel.

One big warning before you attempt a "buckshot" round as you call it....

Many fields are outlawing multiple-projectile rounds due to potential safety concerns. You should consult your local field first to see if there are any special rules (ex- indirect fire only, different velocity rating, if it's even allowed, etc.)

Stuff a paper wad into the barrel to make a good air seal, dum a handfull of paint ontop of the paper, add another wad of the same size to prevent p-balls from rolling out. The paper will do no damage to players, and keep the paint from rolling in unwanted directions.

Dixie cups with paper towel wadding is the easiest/fastest way.

As Thalion said, be careful with "buckshot" rounds.
Do NOT glue or stick paintballs together! It could potentially knock a mask off or cause serious injury...

this is perfect!

buy 20 pods of heavy metal
put a hole in the pod (be creative)
tie a string to the pod
when ready unwrap your pod, remove lid, tie to launcher, load, shoot

the pods (or any pods) are about 2" in diameter
you might want to put the hole in the bottom of the pod so you get all of the paint in the air and it doesnt just do a u-turn and paint you!

experiment with different pods, toilet paper, paper towels, rubber bands, ect. but launch the paint from the pod.
