    Hey Jord, or anyone, do you know or can you tell what sort of leather those sweet Ray shot pouches are made from. Pig maybe??

    I heard kangaroo leather is amazing. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_pirat.png" alt="pirat" longdesc="23"><br><br><table border="1"><tr><td align="left">Studies conducted by the Australian <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commonwealth_Scientific_and_Industrial_Research_Organisation" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation</a> (CSIRO) confirm that kangaroo is one of the strongest leathers of similar substance available.<sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kangaroo_leather#cite_note-RIRDC2002-4" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">[5]</a></sup><sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kangaroo_leather#cite_note-Stephens1987-8" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">[9]</a></sup><br><br>Similarly when split into thinner substances kangaroo retains <br>considerably more of the original tensile strength of the unsplit <br>leather than does calf. When split to 20% of original thickness kangaroo<br> retains between 30 to 60% of the tensile strength of the unsplit hide. <br>Calf on the other hand split to 20% of original thickness retains only <br>1-4% of original strength.<sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kangaroo_leather#cite_note-Stephens1987-8" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">[9]</a></sup><br><br>Kangaroo leather is lighter and stronger than the hide of a cow or <br>goat. It has 10 times the tensile strength of cowhide and is 50% <br>stronger than goatskin.<sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kangaroo_leather#cite_note-9" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">[10]</a></sup><br><br>Studies of the morphology of kangaroo leather help explain its particular properties.<br><br>The collagen fibre bundles in cattle hide are arranged in a complex <br>weaving pattern. The fibres are often at angles as much as 90 degrees to<br> the skin surface. Cattle hide also contain sweat glands, erector pili <br>muscles and a distinct gradation in elastin levels, concentrated in the <br>upper part of the skin. Kangaroo on the other hand has been shown to <br>have a highly uniform orientation of fibre bundles in parallel with the <br>skin surface. It does not contain sweat glands or erector pili muscles <br>and elastin is evenly distributed throughout the skin thickness <sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kangaroo_leather#cite_note-10" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">[11]</a></sup>.<br> This structural uniformity explains both the greater tensile strength <br>of the whole leather and the greater retention of strength in splits. <br>Bovine skin is much more complex in cross section. Hence in whole <br>section it has many more weak point from which tears can start when <br>placed under tension. In addition when sliced into splits the collagen <br>fibres running at significant angles to the skin surface will be cut. <br>These then become weak points in the structural strength.<br>

    Ah so where are our Australian shooters to find us this magic leather and bring it forth unto our ammo baring hands?

    Yellow <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br>Yeap, kangaroo leather is pretty awesome. I have made some tests with leather that is ca. 1mm<br>thick and for now it holds 200shots with no tear (single TBGold 22x18x200mm and<br>8mm steel balls). I wait till it wrecks to test double layers of that glued<br>together <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br>Cheers<br>Rafal

    Hey RobertP, Ya wanna go in half on a cheap kangaroo hide? Surely we could get near 100 pouches from it.

    I would Kyl, but I literally have $0.00 yay for being unemployed. Sadly I can make and find lots of natural forks, yet can not band them, oh well at least I have school right now.
