Profile & Achievements of a Shooter - "Jacko"

An article by Michael Bell

Anthony Bending, whom most of us know as “Jacko” was the man of the moment recently.

To compete in our national championships against the best shooters in the country and be victorious in any category is an enormous achievement. To compete and win in two categories is massive. For Jacko it was surely a dream come true and I think it’s fair to say he was the envy of every shooter at the match.

Hydro Forming Cases - by Michael Bell
The subject of forming cases in this way is not a new one to the 500 flyshooter web site. It’s been touched on a number of times in the forum but has also been a conversational peace at any number of matches.  Not everyone is convinced of it’s value but I am so much of a believer in this method I feel the need to write an article covering all aspects of the process.
