    Has anyone tried Nylon or Rubber round ball?

    That's the one. They did some crazy things in that film. There's another one of theirs where they do some even crazier things using unmentionable shooting irons. They weren't suggesting we try these things. All for "science " as Erik puts it!

    I can verify that shooting a ramrod generates a fearsome amount of recoil. Let's just say, I knew a guy who did that one time.

    Him and Him and Iraqivet8888. They had a real time of it trying to blow up a cheap Spanish made rifle. Not recommending it but they put that caplock thru hell!

    I've seen those nylon balls lying up on the berm and wondered what they were!

    They won’t support us but the law says we have a right to challenge them in court against rich man lawyers. Corrupt isn’t the word for it. They are ugly excuses for human beings.

    Idaho

    I live in Star, Idaho. When we moved here 12 years ago, I went duck hunting a mile from my house. Now, Texas oil a-holes have bought up land and closed access to public lands. Unless you are a member of the "good ol boys" club, good luck.

    Hand Guns' Chronograph Thread

    Aha! That makes a little more sense. Or, as Gilda Radner used to say as the granny commenting on the news on the old SNL, "Never Mind!"

    Hand Guns' Chronograph Thread

    Might try a few of those .410 Svarog slugs. Use a hard .135" card under it. I know they work in a .41 unmentionable because I've done it. Would post a picture but might get in trouble for being too far off topic.

    Hand Guns' Chronograph Thread

    That might take a bite out of your velocity, not to mention the pieces of plywood crashing your chrono. Just put the chrono 10 ft. away and the smoke shouldn't be a problem.

    Hand Guns' Chronograph Thread

    Never occurred to me that the smoke would be a problem and it wasn't for me. About 10 ft. away from my chrono.

    My toys

    I can see by the way they're pointed that they are squirrel guns.
