This is definitely NOT how to make your own pellets. In fact, this video made me cringe !

Why not just go to your tackle box and get a couple lead weights, heat and pound them out, at least their lead.

its always good to use a hardened steel pin to force an oversized chunk of lead (I'm not calling that thing a pellet) into the breech.

Must be accurate too if you can shoot a water bottle from 6 inches away

Oh, like you guys could do so  much better!  Just kidding.  I wouldn't even bother to buy a mold.  Got any idea how hard it would be to mold a .177 or .22 waisted pellet?  I did see a post where a guy made a steel plate with the proper sized hole for a die and then used a rounded steel pin to press roundballs into a sort of stretched, hollow based pellet.  Believe it was for a PCP.  Could work with either .177 or .22 round balls but, then, if you have those, you probably have the pellets.  You could get away in an emergency with a bit of paper patching and anything small enough to use as the projectile such as a nail.   Just don't try to shoot a plain nail as it could end up in your compression tube.  Many a cheap European springer has been torn down to find a seal full of these, LOL!
