Pretty freaking cool! I’ll have to make this into a project to try out.
They shot a pretty tight group, most of the shot staying on a 12” x 12” target of 1/4” ply at about 8-9 feet. Surprisingly the plastic wad penetrated half way through the plywwod, and very close to point of aim.
Just about ready to make an attempt at these.
Did you use the shotgun powder for your powder?
Yes, i used the shotgun powder. I have read online people using Unique, blue dot. There doesnt seem to be a huge amount of risk as its a low pressure situation. The key is creating enough pressure to cycle the slide by manipulating the weight of shot vs powder charge. More powder does not necessarily equal more pressure as you are reducing the available volume/weight of shot. I started at 5 grains and worked up to where it would cycle.
@CaesarGerdes, what part of Colorado you in? Im near Taos NM.
