Steel in a shot cup, or use the copper-plated BB's made for air-rifles?
What is your bore size?


Definitely no steel,shot up or not,in my antique. And from what I've read the copper plated bbs are hard as steel shot anyway

I don't know how much more complicated it is to make bismuth shot, but if it's like lead shot it'll be around the same price for the raw material as the shot costs.

Personally, I'd keep buying firearms until you find one that works...and then keep buying more of them!

I'm not 100% sure of it but I did hear it years ago for victoria, may be worth looking into :unknown:
what was said to me was that if you wanted to use a damascus twist steel barrel you could use lead instead of steel legally
it was a very reliable source that told me :unknown: may be ****** but it's worth a phone call


I know your in SA but that's that's my understanding for Vic too.

I'm assuming you have a duck season in SA?
Ours starts in March or April I think, plenty of time to plan a trip to Vic to shoot ducks on public land.
