this is a .50 cal bullet shell made into a stickshot with an old bb gun spring inside and a piece of rubber ontop to keep it together and capable of clipping in and out the rounds. it fits 7 12mm lead balls but gives an EXTREME HANDSLAP! i have the 4 cuts on my hand to prove it! i got this idea from jorg sprave's video on the stickshot.

Very ingenious! Too bad about the handslap. Do a search on "handslap" and "hand slap" for some discussions and possible solutions for this problem.

Cheers ...... Charles

I am no expert, but I only get handslap when using light ammo, and then its just a matter of adjusting the draw (not pulling as hard).
Seems like 12mm lead would be pretty heavy, but you didnt say what bands / draw length, etc... So maybe trying some less vigorous draws will help.
Very cool device!
