^ The shells used were incendiary rounds, not standard shotgun shells.

This is what I get for watching tv before my morning coffee.

And they don't always use these why?

Someone also posted an interview with one of the actors who said that they used shells with depleted uranium (which US main battle tanks currently use) to take out some of the Terminators.

DU rounds depend upon kinetic energy. Shotguns compared to rifles are lightly made. Less velocity on the projectile the less effective a DU projectile is. Something like a .50 caliber with a DU tipped bullet makes sense not a shotgun slug. You don't bring shotguns when the enemy is wearing body armor. But they do make you look more badass then a machine pistol does on screen.

That is a reference to the shells used to take down the Bedell Terminator.

Can civilians even get depleted uranium shotgun shells?

Millions and millions of dollars in diamonds.

Considering the radiation and viral agents used in the war to wipe out man... Exactly how "dirty" are these people and everything they brought back with them?

Kyle's sperm gave Sarah cancer.

Hmmm.

The title is so cool. I doubt I ever would have got it by myself, since I've already seen the pilot far too many times..

From what I had heard they were also composed of depleted uranium, which would have made them highly effective against armor, including that of a terminator.
