In a few days I will have 800 of those
You are looking at 171 chances at perfection. 800 marbles is ALOT or marbles!!?

Isn't it better to have much more ammo than you need? I do plan to shoot lots of them at targets of opportunity ????

Nice!!! BTW what set-up do you guys use for glass marbles? I shoot them sometimes but they never seem to have a good enough range. I figure it must be friction through the air or something cos it isn't that heavy as a projectile? And the point of impact is usually lower than aimed? Is it just me? What can I do to get the most out of shooting marbles?

My answer will be the rookie marble shooting answer. I use my 'stock' Scorpion setup from PP and work it out from there.

Glass is less dense than steel or lead, so it does loose more speed the further it travels. Your observations are correct, and the reason I don't like it very much. It is the cheapest though, and well suited for shots of opportunity because of the lower cost.

I personally adore cheap ammo ???? It's just that if I am asked to hit a target no matter what, I'll use 9.5mm steel. For general, cheap, plinking fun, marbles are hard to beat though!
