Just curious if anybody had ever used cloverleaf patches that Lehigh Valley sold for a while.
No I never did. I thought it a clever marketing idea. But I don’t think shape of patch has any effect on the shot. Round square triangle all the same as long as the ball has got patch all around.
I've used the October Country Dry Daisy Shooting Patches. Didn't see any difference in accuracy. They do seem to start easier since there is no bunching up around the ball. Other than that they are just a novelty.
Lube and thickness are more important than shape. Shape is almost irrelevant.
I tried some, and they were so loosely woven that they flew apart. No more for me. I use heavy awning canvas with a smaller ball or regular canvas(left over from my wife's primitive clothes making) with a regular .010" undersize ball..
Hmm, Does seem like each valley between the petals would be a potential starting place for a tear to develop.
I bought two thicknesses. One was like gauze and the other wasn't much better. I think I used them up as cleaning patches.
Could be just my imagination, but when I tried them my groups opened up. No thanks. I'll stick with traditional patching.
