Default Cheap accurate practice for revolver shooters

Well I posted this on one of the Judge topics and have found a few people to be interested in it so I thought I would make it available to everyone, I found this website a while ago and didn't really believe it at first but tried it and now I am hooked on it. Cheap accurate practice, you can even do it indoors, this setup is used for cowboy competition shooters as well, go on over and check it out if you are interested and if you have any questions that can't be answered by the website hit me up, I have been doing this for quite a while now and especially with the scarcity of ammo I think this will help some people out.


www.waxbullet.com Spitfire wax bullets, and trust me don't be confused with other imitators out there, this guy has perfected this method and it works, I have tried other brands out there and was not near as satisfied.

If you use your regular cases with large pistol primers, but it is cheaper to buy their modified cases for the 209 shotgun primers which are cheaper and propel them to 21 feet accurately before they start to drop.

Have used these for years- good to about 25 feet, in 38, 44 and 45 ACP.

Interesting..I may check them out. I don't usually shot at such a close range but I can see where something like that would come in handy.

I've seen these before. They seem to work pretty well.

Hmm, these are interesting as well, but I didn't see prices on the site or how to order them. I would think the spark from the primers would eventually damage the cases and bullets tho, how well do they hold up? Also how accurate are they to a real bullet?

They are pretty tuff plastic- have never worn any out. They are not "one hole groups" at 25 feet, but do fairly well. Good for plinking in the garage when the weather sux, and for teaching that squirrel to stay the HELL out of the bird feeder!

Yeah the wax ones aren't either as far as the accuracy, but I like the idea of the reusable plastic bullets and you don't get the slight wax residue either. That is what I like the wax ones for too bad weather indoors practice, and even starting out with new shooters, haven't shot any squirrels yet but have a few stray dogs that keep coming in my yard and messing with my dogs all the time

I learned about wax bullets when I was a youngster. My mother prohibited live ammunition in the house, so I drilled out some .45 Colt cases for wax bullet use. My target was in my closet so I had that much distance added to my bedroom width.

Nice thing was my bedroom was knotty pine paneling and bullets that hit the paneling could be wiped down and waxed the panels.
