  1. No. 209 are not Magnum, just a standard type used in lots of clay/game cartridges. if yours are 209 fine. John
  2. I have a lot of black powder cartridge cases, they have 209 primers fitted so what's good for the factory should be ok.enjoy. John
  3. 9mm

    Found a jar with a load of Sten gun heads in,they havnt been fired so either never loaded or dismantled? perhaps a tad heavy but certainly carry a punch,used to dig the 25 yard range out in Germany in 53 and they accounted for a large number of rabbits (pre mixie days) now in the truck ready for disposal via theraband gold😊
  4. Old Ally Ctties..

    Have a variety of shop bought hung up in garage, my shooter is home made, strag cut out of plywood and powered by double theraband gold with a nice soft pouch. a bag of 100 marbles from pound land for practice and 9mm lead ball for meat, works a treat😊
  5. I Didn't Half Swear.

    Yes, did that as well, but used to get 1000s of ball. Bearings from the blacksmiths at the pit, the ones out of belt rollers, they used to repair them then, about. 1/8 inch so carried well, but covered in grease so had to clean them as best we could.happy days☺️
  6. I Didn't Half Swear.

    I used to shoot 6/7 small ball bearings at once, ️shot a fair few starlings on the wing, more a ️Shotgun pattern but it worked, had to be carful that they were centralised in the pouch, or OUCH.
  7. I Didn't Half Swear.

    Well it's finaly knitted together, got a nice piece of skin jutting up like a forsight, don't think I will use it as such
  8. I Didn't Half Swear.

    Well I am not going to try a ️️shot cam on the catapult and re enact. Recon at least another 5/6 weeks before it heals across, Never mind I at least know how and why it happened so will look on it as educational( ouch.)
  9. I Didn't Half Swear.

    Yes. Have put tabs on strag, used to use old braces but have used para cord, no abrasion now, a lot better.
  10. I Didn't Half Swear.

    Yes, know what you mean. That I can still pull and enjoy is the main thing. Using double T/B gold, still life in it on full stretch, have had some crap stuff in the past. Keep stretching.
  11. I Didn't Half Swear.

    The time it takes me to heal about 3 months.
  12. I Didn't Half Swear.

    Well, look on the bright side, the rabbit was happy.
  13. Pulled the truck up and a nice rabbit sat in sunshine at 20yards. 410 no, catapult will do so in goes a 38 calibre lead ball arm out the window and start to stretch.and then the pain began, left elbow caught stearing. wheel and caused a half pulled ️️shot resulting in half inch of skin from trigger finger knuckle. One educated rabbit that knows a few swear words, been pulling lastic76 years and this to happen is embarrassing. Lesson learned
  14. The Horrors Of Black Powder!

    ️Shot a few reloads of on clays on Sunday, some shooters hadn't seen black powder ️️shot up until then, Fired a couple of rounds on skeet and ball trap after then ussual clean with mop and oil etc no sighn of black powder residue.
  15. Have You Ever Wondered

    Snarepeg. Used to spend hours sat near the pheasant pen whittling pegs from already split wood. Rifle within reach, ️️shot quite a bit of vermin, multi tasking I called it.
