Lead Pellet Loading

Unread postAuthor: keep_it_real » Sat May 26, 2007 1:46 pm

I'm making a loader for .22 lead pellets. The loader works almost the same as a g11: http://world.guns.ru/assault/as42-e.htm. It's basically a ball valve breach loader but instead I'll have a clip so I don't have to load each one individually

The only difference is the pellets will be stacked on top of each other rather than side be side so it's a gravity feed.

Heres my problem. The pellets will fall into a modified ball valve. Inside the ball I'll have a tube that fits the pellets. The ID of the tube has to be slightly bigger than the ID of the barrel so the pellets slide in easily. When it shoots the pellets have to move from the bigger ID tube to the smaller ID of the barrel. Can lead pellets get deformed? Accuracy has to be extremely good.

depending on the pressures involved, just taper the ID slightly, and it should work.

There are rules, and then there are hundred dollar bills.

gravity feed i though you where going to use a spring, having good tension on the loading rounds always helps feeding, i your going to use the pellet catch system i proposed you'll need a spring

If you flare out/bevel the end of the barrel the pellets should feed smoothly enough - at that point they wouldn't have accelerated enough to deform. Make youre you're using pointed or round headed pellets of course.
