Hi jezX!

On the CNC mill trying to have a stationnary cutter and a rotating part would be difficult. As mentioned by other member the lathe would have been a better choice as it is already geared for that.

Your comment just made me realized that I used a jaw attachment on a job I did a long time ago.

I have a hole, that I made in the large threaded block of the CNC bed, to reinstall it at the same location.

I should have remembered that and I could have started with a round bar closer to the shell size minimizing waste.

Too bad I didn't think of it, it is a bit too late now.

Convert a small manual lathe... You know how to make the parts. If you need any help with the electronics, just PM.

Hi badshot!

Thanks for the info.

I am not looking for the regular shotshells as I already received a box with the gun. I would not want to have the small lead BBs all over the place indoor. That is the reason I am shooting wood slugs.

On the other hand the other link is interesting. Plastic balls in .38 would probably be a good fit. Any idea how much it would cost to get them in Canada?

Last year I ordered a kit of metric o-rings from the U.S. and my $30 purchase turned out to be closer to $100 after shipping, brokerage and duty. It was not a fun experience.

There is another option that I am now exploring. I received my cal.38 lead ball mold but I am still waiting for the melter. So in the spring (or earlier if the weather is nice), I am planning to try casting.

Anyway, this is a work in progress but with the aluminum and brass shells that I have, I should be good for a long time.

When dealing with USA suppliers, forget about any that wont ship USPS. If they use FedEx or UPS, look elsewhere.
Unless I really NEED their product, I pass. If you must deal with couriers, set up an account first and have the brokerage fees and taxes billed to that. It will be less expensive that way.

For 3/8 plastic balls, I would look to dollar stores or craft stores before having them shipped. If not, check the Chinese sites.
