I am finding it more difficult than I thought. I now have 2 new pellet rifles but unable to find nonlead pellets and so have not been able to fire either one of them. I find my steel BBs and copper coated steel BBs roll out of the barrell.
I found a UK website ad that sells nonlead pellets but they refuse to answer my email.
So I was wondering if I can somehow adapt steel BBs so that I can shot them out of a pellet rifle.
My first thought was if I could somehow apply a glue such as Elmers glue to a BB would when dry be large enough to fit the hole but trouble with that idea is it may gum up the barrell.
I thought of perhaps wrapping the BB inside a little plastic cut out of a plastic bag but the trouble with that idea is that the plastic would stay inside the barrel and would have to clean it often.
Then I thought of some sort of add on engineered contraption at the hole that is a very tight fit so the BB stays there, sort of like a gasket or O ring until the BBs wear it down.
And I thought of perhaps forging some container where I would melt down copper and produce my own copper pellets. I suppose these nonlead pellets manufactured in England are made of tin, (only guessing).
Anyone have experience or in the same predicament?
Maybe someone knows of a USA company that can supply me with nonlead pellets. I need to control rabbits in wintertime from girdling young trees.
Funny to me how the USA government claims so much worry over environment where they outlaw lead in paint and lead in gasoline yet allows the entire countryside be filled with lead shot and lead fishing weights when we can easily find substitutes. And it is a shame that Greenpeace has not spent time and effort on getting lead out of common use of sports where it pollutes so much land and water.
