Yes, that's correct but I personally use it thinner than recommended, as to not 'gum up' the locks.
When dry, I run the lock back and forth a few times to assure it works properly.

How do they look? They have 13" 1x19- 1/16th cable with a gregerson #0 lock and loaded. They are not done but will be when i order swivlels to be inline and of course a wammy. The bottom one is what happens when i give 'em a little tap with my finger. I just got a bunch of snareing stuff from snare-one for my birthday tomorow and couldn't wait to make a few up. Thanks to all the people on here and especialy L.T. Grey for shareing all of this information!

Kyle, on a Gregerson lock that small, ( I'm guessing that is a #0 or a #1)...the 7x7 will close better than the 1x19.
You also could load it a tad bit more, making the bow a little more gourd shaped.

Roung out the lock end of the snare.Where it go's through the bottom of the lock. This will make it fire faster.
as LT said you can load it more.

Guys I just got the Dan Dezern book on snaring and I have a question that I think belongs in this post. In the book he shows the Gregerson snares and they have "springs" for cable ends the look like they were hammered on. What can you guys tell me about these? Do they work? Can you make them? They look like tight coils of 9 ga wire that are hammered on to the ends of the snare cable.

Snaring is the wat to go imo. My first year which was last year, only caught one yote in a foothold but caught 8 in snares. I plan to do much better this season. I use the Amberg lock system. Anybody have any experience with this setup?

Yes, I have been using Amberg locks for quite a while and they work great. I also use the spring with micro and camlocks. Using the kill spring speeds up the dispatch and virtually eliminates jugheads.

I just ordered some locks and springs and such and got them all in the proper time. I don't know about ready made snares though.
