Nice,accurate shots Jaegoor! Your accuracy is really good,because of the many practice you have,the heavy stones that your using,which make your shots slower,so it's easier to release in the right moment.Personally I would like to be as accurate or even more, Tongue and shoot faster.The faster part is no problem,just accuracy.Don't you loose or break your nice stones hitting the Diana quickly at that range?Or it's not a problem as you have plenty of good stones available?

Nice shooting, Jaegoor.  Thanks for sharing.  These days I find myself slinging exactly like you.  My accuracy has improved and I find it much easier on my body, particularily my right shoulder.  I never intended to copy you, but that's where I'm at now and I'm liking it.

It looks to me that the oval 'stones' are cast from concrete. What is the pupose of the red stripe around them? Are they cast as two halves and then joined in the middle?

They look like stones to me,and the red stripe or paint is for easier spotting I think,he just didn't wanted to paint them all red,so they don't loose they stone look,but still easier to spot.And being cast in two halves and joined in the middle would probably make them split when slung,because of the huge centrifugal forces,or a hit at the target would surely brake them.

@ jlasud

I've been wondering about the mechanics of casting good eggshaped projectiles. To make a mould with a complete eggshaped cavity is quite complicated as would be th process of filling the mould itself. But to make an open one and casting the projectiles as halves would be quite easy. All that you would need to do is to insert a central pin of some kind so the halves would be pinned as well as glued together. Concrete glues quite well with industrial builder's glue (Sold here under the trade name of Liquid Nails).

I am sure that these projectiles would easily survive the stresses of the throw and even a landing on soft earth. Hitting something hard would cause them to shatter of course. That's the trade off with any manufactured ammo, to make it simple and easy enough to do considering the short life itsgoing to have.

I will append a sketch of the moulding process I have in mind later.

I use marked stones for different reasons.
One finds them better in the area.
However, this is no problem. My stones also have a smell mark. Thus the dog finds them over and over again. Also under sand.
I mark stones as a token of the weight.
All these stones are absolutely same in the weight.
Children of the neighbours sometimes play on the area where I train. If they with dig in the sand such stones find, then they lay this to a certain place. Thus I find them over and over again.
They sometimes find stones which I 3-4 years ago used. I recognise this then by the colour of the mark.
To generate stones artificially is not the expenditure become. They destroy themselves with the first shot.
Stones hold a little longer. But also these break.
With this series of 5 shots, the impact already destroyed two.
Though my shots look very light and loose. However, these are not they. By this technology the stones attain a huge power.
This power originates by this are of use of physical laws. She originates not only pure muscle strength. Too much muscle strength is even very obstructive with learn to the technology.
A stone was a so-called "Wall Stone" http://www.strandsteine.de/Wallsteine.htm
These are special Flintstones of the coast.
One used them earlier in factories to chop up from wood. These stones are enormously tough and long-lasting. However, her life span is only short with me.


Here still a small film in memory.
This happens with artificial stones.
I used to strengthen polyfiber by the concrete with some attempts even. The Ergebniss was the same one.

Jaegoor you have a really good system with the dog and children bringing the stones Grin Aussie,it's possible to make concrete eggs by hand,without the need for a mold,and two halves and the need for joining them.I posted a pic of my concrete eggs in the "I must be a sling and ammo maniac" topic.I made those by forming them by hand in one piece,and because of the nature of concrete,you must form them while relatively soft,and when you put them down they flatten a bit.So I formed them about 3 times 15-30 minutes apart so they won't be flat on one side.It doesn't take that much time as it sounds as the first forming is that takes longer,the second and third forming is much quicker,fine finishing,rolling out the flatness.I discovered that after the concrete starts to set,it makes forming much easier if you shake the eggs so the centrifugal force gets the water from inside on the outside.You can make 50 or more concrete eggs in 2 hours from start to finish.

You can believe me. It is too much expenditure.
I spend the time rather with shoot.
Stones are a good choice. They hold longest. I tried it also with lead. However, this is not well for the environment. And it destroys my aim.
I make my concrete ammunition with one form from metal. Tonight I show you with pleasure sometimes a few pictures of it.

Great slinging man! Does the shorter sling help?

I was pretty good at slinging like 10 years ago.
