Powerful Swaged Exploding Pellets
« on: April 01, 2014, 09:33:01 PM »
Just been playing around with my Nomad Pellet Swaging die when I discovered you can fill the cavity with what ever & re-swag it. You just put it back in the die upside down. Each pellet here had enough room to fit 5 toy caps in the paper stripe. You have to cut away the paper of course. Now they will pop inside the die with all that pounding, so you get em wet insert in skirt & swag like you normal would. Anyways check out the video it is cool stuff  8) Also accuracy does not suffer, at least not at 20 yards. Here is the link [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IR2Z2xE-tVs]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IR2Z2xE-tVs[/url]  :-*

Back in the early 70s,us lads found that with Eley wasp pellets,theres a hollow cavity in the pellet that could be stuffed with red match powder,to keep it in and dry a small drop of hot candle wax droped on to skirt of pellet and wiped of before it sets.
These pellets made a fair bang when hitting a hard object.

Yes I have tried match dust, but 5 toy caps by them self's can launch a .177 lead ball with good velocity, you can check out some of my Rider videos. They make more sparks & bigger bang then the match dust as well. The exit holes of the lap top were a lot bigger then the regaler pellet, more then twice as big.
