Default Sniper Rifle For Squirrel Hunting



http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_7P2zxHuq0C...200/sling2.JPG



This was one of the first slingshot rifles I built , Kills squirrel at 50 yards with 50 call lead balls , 50 yards gives me 1 inch groups . Took a long time to zero it in though.

Great question, With the tubes it shot the 3/4 inch 265 grain lead ball at 275 fps and the 1/2 inch lead ball at 362 fps . This was on a cold day when I tested so the flat elastic did not perorm that much better.
