I've used Navy beans but the wife complains because I'm using what she uses for bean soup.

Thatís pretty simple if for a 10 gauge get a piece of a 16 or 20 gauge single barrel . Grind around one end to make it sharp then just tap it with a hammer when itís on the styrofoam tray and wahla .

Buy a gasket hole punch from one of the cheap tool places( i bought a set of 12 for $9.00) sharpen it and it will push out a perfect disc with hand pressure.

On this side of the pond we find ways to increase load height for a good crimp. Beans, corn, etc. are all cheap and easy to use.

The dark beans seem to work better Paul. Just kidding. I have patterned with beans and no effect on pattern plus they are biodegradable. The best part is I don't have to stock them in different sizes nor pay shipping cost. Maybe not up to English standards but they work just as well as fiber wads.
