Casting .30 cal pellets
« on: July 24, 2018, 01:08:58 AM »
Iíve got the flex .30 cal and for the last few months I have been casting pellets from Noe. Iíve had really good luck with and I am planning to keep it up. I am wondering if anyone else has tried this and if anyone would know what size of a pellet sizer I should order? I am definitely going to need to size some of these to get better accuracy. Also i would like to post some pix but I donít know how to do it. Thanks

Pellets are designed to be significantly larger at the head than the skirt.... The .30 cal NOE pellet head is 0.300", but the skirt is 0.308", both are almost identical to the JSB pellets.... If you are planning to size pellets, you need to make an arrangement that only sizes the head of the pellet (push in part way, push back out the reverse direction)Ö. I suppose you could make a sizer with two different diameters, to also size the skirt, but I have never seen one....

To add pictures the easiest way (for me) is Imgur.

Easy to start an Imgur account (all they need is your email) and I use the app on my phone since I use that to take all my pictures.  I can go on the app to upload pictures to imgur and then when you go to Imgur on the computer and bring up your picture click on the "copy direct link" button.

Then come here and click the little Mona Lisa square above these ( :D ;D) two smileys and hit ctrl + v to paste the link.

I imagine any other image hosting site would work as you just need the link to post it but Imgur has proven very simple for me to use.
