X-Ring Rubber Bullets

Bought a box of these on a lark the other day, and decided to try them out on the Charter Bulldog. 

You start out by screwing up some cases by drilling out the flash holes with a 1/8” drill bit


Then prime the cases with regular primers



Then just stuff the rubber bullets in by hand


At that point- there was nothing left to do but try em out. I loaded them up in the Charter Bulldog, wadded up some old t-shirts and jeans as a target, and let ‘em rip. 



They worked just as advertised. A small primer “pop”, and the rubber bullet burrowed into the wad of rags. No  visible damage to the bullets, a bit of damage to the backstop, and appear to be completely re-usable. 

Next step is trying some on targets for accuracy. 

If you are thinking of these, give ‘em a try. They seem pretty fun.

    They hit low, but grouped pretty well at about 5 feet.

    I don't believe Texas allows polygamy.

    Is this something I could use in the backyard? Small town, small yard.

    Let me know how they work on pesky rogue neighborhood cats.
