  1. 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😊
  2. 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☺️
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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.)
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. I Didn't Half Swear.

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

    Well, look on the bright side, the rabbit was happy.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 12 Gauge Reloading

    Still useing stuff collected over the years. But a good powder for normal cartridges loading 24 gram to 32 is AS from C&G. Using recovered ️️shot at the moment but stocks exhausted from supplier ????? Looks like the ️️shot dropper being fired up at some point if no more available. . john
  14. 12 Gauge Reloading

    No problem Phil. Have a 366 Pacific in 20 guage. 300/350 per hour ( not for sale) Your welcome to have a look at this, near Bawtry. John
  15. 12 Gauge Reloading

    Home made ️️shot is the way to go for saving money, been dropping it for 50years but lead getting harder to source now. Wheel weights are now made with alloy? Houses built with plastic pipes etc. Loading 410 and 28guage and your in the money, 20/16/12 with shop bought components not worth the effort, and probably work out dearer unless bulk buying components. But still have a fair bit to load so will carry on.
