I took series of 10 shots at 20m. And  biggest score was 10. A lot of 1-3 points  Tongue

Wow...

Not sure when i get the chance...but it didn't seem to affect my accuracy much. Although a little gettin-used-to-it slinging would help.

Great job guys!

This is a tough system, but don't be discouraged if your scores aren't quite where you want. Instead be motivated to work on accuracy, experiment with different styles, different length slings, and different ammo.

Thanks for participating and keep on slinging!

With five shots each on 10, 15 and 20 meters I scored a maximum of 18. The average series score is around 12 to 15.
I used water filled tennisballs (around 150 g) and a 60 cm long sling.

The most problems I had with the 10 meter distance. The consistency of my shots fell quite a bit, when moving from 15 to 10 m. This may be also due to the fact, that I usually train on 20m and more and so it was a bit unfamiliar to shoot at short distances.

hm... i have found that the arc/length of the sling messes with my angles(with figure 8 the projectile is released almost 8 feet off the ground

I'll have to make some more concrete ammo and see what i can do. Sounds like fun.

Morphy: You might want to try my new method for making uniform weight ammo with quite precise weighting,quite quick: I use a 100ml syringe,cut off nozzle end,in a way that just barely stops the piston from getting pushed out easily. Then i push the syringe (with piston pushed in) into clay,until i get the desired volume ex.70ml,then i just push out the clay rod,roll,repeat. Should work with concrete too. Even better. It's a bit hard to push it in clay,especially with volumes closer to max capacity.

That is ingenious jlasud.  I will give that a shot as soon as I can get a hold of a syringe. Thanks.  Smiley

Hope,you'll find it useful,i'm glad if it helped. Looking forward to your exp. with concrete.  Wink

Sorry for being slightly off topic. (although uniform ammo is part of accuracy during comp. )
