I made an interesting discovery today.
I have found a way to capture pellets after they have been fired, so the can be inspected for the rifling marks, etc.
The method is, use a net that is used to stop arrows in archery.
Fire some pellets at one of these loosely strung nets (@ 55 yards) that has a white sheet spread under it. Go and pick up the pellets from the sheet, inspect the effect the rifling has on the head & skirt on the intact pellet.
Sometimes the pellets are actually caught in the net.
I will post some photos of my pellets in due course.
