  2. Slingshot Hunting
    Hello all Thought I would share an experiment I did with different hunting setups of mine on some ballistic gel. The gel was homemade out of cooking gelatine so the precise depths are not necessarily applicable to actual meat, however the relative depths are. in the top photo of the gelatine the...

    Hello everybody Clay behaves differently according to temperature, humidity, etc. Any tips and advice on how to store clay balls? This is to maintain consistency, hardness and not gain moisture. Thanks

    Looking for a new frame and watched several videos on getting the right shot for the bands but it seems they all assume steel shot and mention both size and weight. I want to shoot clay shot and wondering how it compares. I have yet to find any charts to that a comparison. Will bands good for...

    What size bearing balls should I use for 1 mm thick flat bands? I want to shoot pigeons, coots and if possible with the same band also rabbits. I really don't have a clue on what size ammo I should get, I looked up 10 mm steel but don't know if that is good, it's also pretty pricey. So if there...

    Hey Folks, I found an interesting video. An excellent shooter tested different ammos and at 9:35 of the video, you can see how far each one went into the gel. Very interesting test. What do you think? It is a pity 3/8'' steel ball was not shown there.

    I'm brand new to slingshots and will be picking up an Enzo start pack. It comes with "18/12" band set they say is matched for 8mm steel ammo. I'd like to start out on some kind of safer ammo if possible in case of frame hits and other technique related problems I might encounter as a beginner...

    Can anyone tell me the weight difference of clay ammo vs steel? I normally shoot 8mm steel but I was thinking of converting to clay.

  12. Homemade Slingshots
    This is a fun one I made after making a blue and a black hammer set for a gentleman in Italy... Whenever I make more than one of a design I usually cut a spare core just in case I screw up, and that's what this one started off as... the spare. Well, the two others turned out good so when I had...

    After reading this topic, , I decided to model some polymer clay around some hex nuts & washers. They have a bit more ummph than just regular baked clay, & help give shape to the hex nuts. I hope to test them a bit later today.

    Does anyone have suggestions for biodegradable ammo, other than clay ? I tried garbanzo beans, but they aren't very round and they curve a lot. Thanks.

    I have shot almost one bag of those with my friend. When they hit something hard, like a rock, they brake down to fine dust. And they are also cheap, 2.50 euros for one liter.

    SCORE! Just hit the Dollar Store and found 23 bags for .60 cents a piece. I left two bags, in case there's another shooter in the vicinity. New tubes on my shooter and I'm off to the races, or the loony bin.

    G'day, mates. My friend Paul lives in Queensland and is in need of ammo. I sent him home with a Bill Hay's SEAL and a few hundred rounds of marbles and 3/8 two weeks ago. Obviously, he's out of ammo. He owns and runs Prawnstar lures, so he's pretty busy. I'd like to have some ammo sent to him...
