Pellet type ammo

Unread postAuthor: BlackH » Tue Sep 16, 2008 7:20 am

Used a 10mm fish tank hose and a 13mm steel ball and made the hose flare out to make the tale of the "pellet" work awesome in my 15mm copper barrel.

not to double post look here : The ammo and gun

Wow, they look, good, and easy to make in large numbers.

I cast some 14mm lead diabolo pellets and they worked great, making a realiable mold that can be used a large number of times is another story.

I'd imagine your accuracy has greatly impoved with those ?

Yes it is amazing what a nice bullet can do to your gun and is actually weird how the fish tank pipe helps it not to tumble, it goes straight!!! and i wanted something in my barrel that isnt harmfull to the barrel so plastic would help and the pipe is durable! If i through the "pellet" in the air it comes back on its head. And this just poped into my head don't know how hehehehehehe

Very good idea indeed, how tight is the fit in your barrel?

its real tight i have to push down on the pellet in the barrel then hold it down so the air can pass otherwise it pushes itself out again, and if you shoot it the back opens and make the fit tighter

The one thing about a bullet that fits so nice is it makes one hell of a noise, but the power is so much better!!!!

nicely done, just the sort of ammunition that can be manufactured quickly in a consistent manner and allow for some measure of accuracy, while presumably still being very destructive on target :D

This ammo is quite an good idea! I love it!
The hose both acts as an tail AND it enlarges the diameter of your projectile.
