    Might be easier to just buy different wads? I use the Claybuster Blue Wads for Lee and Lyman Slugs and they work well in my Smoothbore Shotguns for my intended uses of shooting steel targets and plinking. 35-50 yards. My round ball loads are all...

    Yeah it does, but now after seeing your slingshot I have to ask,, Do you own a machine shop? Cuz from all your postings it kind of looks like you do, or at least run one with fringe benefits. AS far as that metric thing half the stuff I make for...

    I don't see it. but I don't have a Gen 5, all mine are 3rd Gen and have shot countless lead boolits. At the ranges you would shoot guns like this IE: "Conversational Distances" 3-25 yards maybe out to 50. Minor differences in accuracy are...

    The thing with S&W revolvers is all the big ones hit the web of your hand really hard and this gets old fast. With MY m29 I could shoot 12 rounds of full power loads and I was done. Put Pachmayer grips of that one and it was much better. Fast...

    The M69 was the replacement for the S&W 696 the Ruger GP100/44 was also a replacement for that gun. Mine is a 696 no dash as opposed to a 696-1 or -2. -1 had the firing pin in the frame as opposed to on the hammer, and the -2 had the silly...

    Roadie: Slingshots have alot in common with Conventional Archery. The anchor points are virtually identical, as are methods of sighting. The biggest variable I can find is having the yoke perpendicular to the bands when at full draw. One of the...

    Just use the 1/4" felt wad in the base of the shot cup. It cups around the ball very well and centers the ball in the wad during firing which in turn centers the ball in the bore as it travels . Randy

    Long Knife: It's not so much about what twist rate is needed to stabilize those slugs, it's about what rifled barrels you can get to shoot them thru. Most 12 ga. Rifled Shotgun Barrels are between 1:34 and 1:36, so that's what you've got to work...

    When I started, the instructions that came with the Whamo Slingshot said to hold the thing with your thumb and fore finger straddling the yoke, your other 3 fingers wrapped around the handle. Then when you'd draw it and hold it at a 45 degree angle...

    A .50 cal ball weighs 175 gr. and with the right slingshot would be lethal inside 10 yards. Cast is fine. Although my LGS has swaged Round Balls for Muzzleloaders in about every size known to man. $10 for a hundred. Randy

    The sights on that gun looked nice. You will have to accept a little less than perfect accuracy, but the satisfaction you get from shooting Iron Sights far exceeds that of using a Scope IMHO. Randy

    With the .662 RB the hot tip is to put a 1/4 felt cushion wad under the ball. This helps to center the ball in the wad as it accelerates down the barrel. Don't go overboard trying to push these too hard. Regular Trap loads with the ball and wad...
