Bullet weights?

Unread postAuthor: us sniper » Wed Jul 11, 2007 10:43 pm

Has anyone used the bullet weights from fishing. They fit well into copper pipe and look just like regular bullets as the name implies.

but i bet if you had a rifled barrel it would decrease or stop the tumbling. if you have a rifled barrel i would try it. you will probably get good results.

Yeah but you would have to run your pneumatic at insane pressures(well not insane for some of you but 100psi wont cut it)so the rifling ingraves the bulet and actually has an effect on it. Then you may as well buy proper bullet projectiles they're cheap as. I got 100 .303 projectiles for like $20NZD which is like $14USD
