But my concern is we not just shoot two or five or 10 pellets a time.... At least 30 to 50 in a short session I think.... Still worth to make the own pellets to cover that?

I use pumpers, SSP, 1322... Pumping is making me tired, I think I won't do pumping again after making pellets...

Well you make pellets a head of time. Got 30mins free time? Here and there? Keep doing that till you got plenty. I don't reload ammo I need for that day, Ill reload when I got free time. SO normally have a months worth of ammo piled up.

I think this tool has its special purpose, not for only making daily use pellets, right?

My second bottle of used pellets is coming full on the way.... That makes me a second mile stone for finishing shooting 5lbs of lead ... I can't imagine that if I turn those into the home made pellets.... lol

Looks like you need to use lead wire. Or cast those used pellets onto wire. But be warned that some pellets have zinc in them. And zinc + lead = no good.

uh huh.. Doesn't work that way, You need more lead to make a pellet than using a finished product.
Unless you're using lead wire, Then there the extra cost in smelting the lead. Camp stove, a pot. A mold to remake them into lead wire. Then if you got a mix of lead free and lead pellets, you might want to sort them out before smelting because they don't mix well. If you're in an apartment, than this option isn't good for you.

Roll of lead wire is $$$ and if you goto a range and pick up bullet scraps. The lead might be too hard.

These plier are double than the nomad kit I'm looking at.

So this tool + lead wire... How much pellets can you buy for it? Unless you're shooting big bores or 25 cal. It would be awhile before you pay the tool off.

When I bought it, the freight was included in $400. I remember it was global shipping, and Canada and the United States were free shipping,Actually, this product is quite expensive. But I think the market has a lot of potential.

Companies that make pellets may be phased out


I appreciate you bringing this product to our attention however no. JSB, Crossman, RWS, or whoever will not stop making pellets any time soon.

Losing something in the translation, maybe?

Let's see if I get this right.

At a range of 28", these home made pellets will shoot into a group the size of a tennis ball or tennis racket or tennis table.
All that accuracy for a paltry $400.00 US.

Doesn't sound all that great then.. I rather spend 100 GBP and get the Nomad kit.

400 USD for these pliers. Which is 530 CAD. Just think all the pellets you can buy for that much? You might in 10 years pay off the pliers. But highly doubt it.

And really no reviews on the quality of the pellets. So 530$ and could make crap pellets that don't group worth Tennis Tables.

Can you get actual reviews on the quality and accuracy of said pellets? Other than one lost in translation that makes no sense?
