I remember making whistles from old fired 12 bore cartridge cases with dowel inserts years ago - very frustrating, but once you work it out you wonder where you went wrong!

 

It is all in the the length of the chamber and angle/placement of the hole

I really cannot remember the dimensions or shape - I just know that it took me about a week of trying to get it right :toast:

 

After that it was easy, but I have forgotten it all now. That was 25 years ago ...
