Adjusting the weight of your dart?
I saw a video here on DNF showing how you can add weight with tungsten putty.  Has anybody tried to remove weight from a barrel in your home shop?

Yes. Quite a few of us have had our darts drilled out to reduce weight.

Try Dremel to drill them but in case you make a mistake. . .tungsten putty can fix them.

Or I would seek help of Matt - Hands on Darts. He is US based so contact him: mattj@Hands-On-Darts.com

Does anybody do it themselves, or are they always sent out?

I suspect it's just a matter of not ruining the threaded part of the inside of the barrel

Jugger and Leaky have access to a metal lathe. So they've done some. 

I've always sent mine out. It's super cheap now that I have someone in the USA that can do it.

In the UK it's Madhouse for sure.

on a similar vein, how much weight would adding extra rings grooves take off a dart.... obviously this will vary depending on a lot of things but I was wondering if it might be possible to take a gram or two off doing this .. or would it be just .5g or something quite small?
