shotgun wadd

Unread postAuthor: spud downunder » Tue Jun 09, 2009 6:13 am

hi everyone first post on here, thort i wuld share my newest discovery, recently ive got hold of some smallish ball bearings and had been shooting them thru my marble gun by using paper wadding back and front, this was worrking pretty good altho the spread of the shot was wide and crazy, so i was thinking of how a real shotgun works how the wadd( the plastic wadd type that is) and how it sorta cups the shot thru the air for a small time, so i got sum wads, they fit almost perfectly into my barrel jst need a bit of sanding down to size, so i tried them out and the result was amazing

3 meters- paper wad on either side-shot spread was bout 7inch
3 meters- plastic shotgun wad- shot spread was all in a 1inch square :shock:
