As for the nipple wrench, I got tired of killing the stupid things. I bought several that didn't last long enough to get all 6 nipples off one cylinder before the damn thing rounded off and was useless. I finally made my own out of a socket wrench. I used my Dremel and a cutoff wheel to cut a slot in the socket. It works perfectly and hasn't failed me yet.

I did the same thing...

Video and more info as well!!!

Did you build it? i would spray paint or powder coat them balls fluorescent orange as well so you can recover them!  thats a heck of a lot of lead to throw around... whats the bore diam? is there anything else you can shoot out of it ??? not shrapnel and nails, but something solid like a bowling ball?

wow.... lots of very cool inlay!!

why not start with putti g some shot down the tube in a capsule? that would get you on the range without having to wait on much of anything....it dont work worth a crap to kill anything but with your paper rolling skills, you could make a shot capsule pretty easy....

also consider the LEE Real bullet.. I shoot them from my 50 and they are nice. i know rb are your ultimate goal, but in the meantime, that beauty needs shootin...

i think he will get it all figured out,,,
