    Default BB bumpers

    Just wondering if anybody has found a replacement for BB bumpers.

    I'd do a search as there has been discussions arround this. I can't attest to this but I've read that the Canvas dummy for the Retriev-R-Trainer and Lucky Launcher II will fit the BB.

    Yes, I posted a video of a BB using the canvas bumpers.
    And I use it all the time.

    I have a friend who put cork-filled canvas bumpers over the Retriever-R-Trainer bumper cores on his BB to use as spares. He did say you need to use a different primer load with them to get them to launch properly. I'll have to ask him again but I think he said he had to use the brown loads to get them to fire.

    I used to use the hot loads becuse I liked the big arc and noise. With BB toast and parts hard to come by I have backed off on the loads and will baby mine until I save enough for a new remote launcher. Id suggest using the lightest load that will get the result you need for that drill/mark. The BB do take a pounding.
