    make the hole as big as possible. a bigger hole is easier to center the ammo.<br><br>dont make it to big or your pouch will break.

    If it's your first time than measure the center first and use a hole punch-set like in Jeorgs tutorial to do it. It's not expensive and really makes it faster than using a nail.

    I think the center hole have to be 60% of the diametre of your ammo <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_question.gif" alt="Question" longdesc="17">
     
  6. I usually use a much smaller hole in my pouch than that, maybe that's why I am not as accurate?

    I use a much smaller hole too 'caus i don' t have a puncher and i think if i had one, it will be much easier to shoot. And like you said, i will be more accurate too <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15">

  9. It makes sense, the hole needs to be big enough to center the ammo but not so large to make the pouch too frail or too large so the ammo slips through. I'll go rewatch Jeorg's vids and see what he says.

    You' re right, it makes sense but i am not sure about how much % of the size of the ammo <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_question.gif" alt="Question" longdesc="17"> If the hole is too large you got a dryfire <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">
     
  11. One of the reason I use a smaller pouch hole is I shoot a mix of 3/8 and 1/2 inch steel balls, with the occasional 19mm or so glass marbles. I can't have the hole too big or my little 3/8 will fall through and I don't want to make 2 sets of bands for each of my slingshots.

    I shoot three different size, 9mm, 10mm and 12mm. I think if i can push a hole for a 9 mm it will be better for the other sizes too. What do you think? There is not enough topics about the hole IMO <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"> .
     
  13. I have the same problem, the hole doesn't get enough attention <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_scratch.png" alt="scratch" longdesc="33"> Since you are lucky enough to deal in the metric system (oh yes, an american who prefers the metric system go figure) you have much more precise specs for your ammo you can easily get. if I don't want to pay my left teste I have to deal in american standard measurements where I live. So my ammo is usually an 1/8-1/4 inch difference in size. Not a couple millimeters. I don't understand the reason for the difference, I do a lot of cheristry and build a lot of different projects. mm and ml, are a lot more accurate than inches and tablespoons.

    i think the smallest you should go is about 40% of your ammo size. if you go smaller than that it really doesnt help much.

    I don't use the pouch hole because I don't have yet the tool to do it ... I am sure that it helps the proper center of the ammo (increasing accuracy). Some as John Gamekeeper don't use it, in my case as you know I also shot rods an a "holeless" pouch loads better this type of ammo ... anyway yet I am used with the holeless pouch ...
     
  16. I can see the hole in a puch being a serious problem with the rod style ammo you use. As I said I make very small pouch holes (Since it is used to center a shot my thought was to make it small, therefore less area for it to be called "center") I actually use a drill with a small wood bit to "punch" the holes in my pouch, I really do enjoy the few tools I own at this point and try to use them at every chance.
