    Fifteen 10mm balls, or 8 12 mm balls... that is larger than Four-Aught buckshot. Well in the srapnel league. <br><br>See here:<br><br><embed pluginspage="" src="" width="425" height="350" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" quality="high" scale="exactfit"></embed>

    I like the idea of shooting multi-shot charge. I have had the best luck getting a tight pattern, by using my "heavy barrel" slingshot rifle. It has a 2" (25mm) wide mechanical release. I put a 5/16" dowel into the pouch and clamp it in the release. Then I pull out the dowel and push 4 1/2" steel balls into the pouch. The balls remain in a strait row in the pouch and make a very tight pattern on the target. At 10-15 yards the balls hit in a fairly strait line less than 2 feet long and sometimes tighter. If I shoot two balls they will often hit 3-4 inches apart. Good luck.
