Kydex pouch for lead shot
Got the 1mm Kydex today and made a pouch.
This works fantastic! I designed the pouch in a way that it can not fully open, just enough to let the 19mm lead ball out. This leads to very tight groups when I use lead shot! Even from 10 meters, several balls hit the air rifle target (which is small). At 5 meters, all of them are in the air rifle target.
I smashed an apple from 5 meters! No tissue bags whatsoever.
But it also shoots very good with lead balls.
The only issue: You either have to wear a glove or shoot it flipstyle. The pouch is not heavier than leather, but much harder, so a handslap might cause cuts, would hurt very much for sure.
