I bought some “hardened” black gels off ebay a couple of weeks ago. Figured for $8 worth a crack haha
Arrived no issues, soaked them as i usually do (4-6 hours depending on how forgetful i am, tap water, room temperature) and chucked a couple in a mag to try out.
As i was loading them i noticed they are soft, like REALLY soft. They are maybe a little bit firmer than jelly and are the softest gel i have ever felt by a long shot - compressing them next to the normal $5 ebay specials i get makes the “cheap and nasty” stuff look like marbles by comparison!
Any ideas why they could be so soft other than just being a crap product? Have i somehow missed something obvious whenever i soak gels and somehow got lucky every other time?
