Easiest way I am aware of is to use brass shells with large pistol primers with 6-10 grains of unique or other black powders/replacements, 1/2" fiber wad on the powder with a 1/32" overshot wad above the shot and then epoxy the edge of the outer wads and dry. If you are doing buckshot, it is typically smart to evenly stack them in layers and use some shot buffer in a thin layer in between the layers of shot to keep them from deforming so bad. Just carefully arranging them so they interlock helps also and acts like a spring on firing. Here's a link to one place to get the 16 ga. brass shells:

I am currently starting to do this as well, so just passing along what I'm learning too. ;)
