Someone challenged me to make a slingshot that shoots shotgun pellets.

Of course I know that this has been done already, and a long time ago (there was even a commercial product). But with my powerful slingshots, I think I can hurl a large amount of lead pellets, far more than it was possible with the previous models.

Now I was thinking to use Kydex for the pouch. Kydex is a material that is often used for knife sheaths, it can be formed when hot and then it stiffens as it cools, holding the form.

This video shows how it is processed:


Seems easy enough.

Now my idea is to make a pouch just like Saunders, only from Kydex and shaped for a lot of pellets.

The cups would hold the shot, and there would be a little "funnel" on the top so you can load the pellets comfortably.

The joint in the middle of the pouch would be weakened just enough to make the pouch foldable in the middle.

This could probably work for regular lead/steel balls as well!

What do you think? I do see some danger from the pouch beeing hard, but then again the Saunders pouch is hard, too.

Maybe the Kydex pouch isn't such a bad idea, if combined with the "tissue wrap" method?

As I like the Saunders pouch, I wanted to try to make one myself anyway. Just for bigger ammo.
