make your own tungsten powder buffer substitute? ?

Recommended Posts

I was looking at tungsten powder buffers, and thought, What if I took the weight out of my standard buffer and replaced it with lead shot, stainless pins or whatever to replicate a tungsten powder filled buffer, but for free?

I can't be the first person to think of this...  What do you think?

You could do it but I do not think it would feel the same.  I think the idea of the powder is that it flows similar to water.  I cannot see pins or lead shot acting in the same manner.  Although it would be different than a normal buffer it would not be the same as the powder in feet recoil.  I imagine the of the feel of the impulse of the pins/lead shot would be somewhere in between the normal buffer and the tungsten powder buffer.
