I bought 3000 off amazon, dark brown and 3/8, but there may be better deals around. I noticed that stored in the heat of my high desert garage (110* +), they soften a little and give off an earthy smell until the temp goes down. When I proposed storing them in the coolerator ... my wife just laughed.

Some good info in these threads -

I make my own, out of air dry clay, they’re around 10 mm or so, cheap to make, fun to shoot, fairly accurate to 15 yards, then just fun to see where they go, I shoot them sometimes, real fast, light, but heavy enough to take birds, really excites squirrels, raccoons, stray animals, fun stuff for just messin around.

I received small plastic bags with clay ammo with some Chinese slingshots ordered at Aliexpress a while ago: unfortunately, its diameter (caliber) tends to be rather varied (even Italian noodles are more consistent :naughty: ), which is not ideal in terms of overall performance.

The sample of "Clod Poppers" I received from Saunders a while ago is a totally different story: it is very well made with regard to its perfect spherical shape and caliber consistency, and has a relevant weight that allows it to perform efficiently further downrange too.

It can be used as reusable training ammo on soft targets (e.g. corrugated cardboard target against suspended towels), and makes a nice cloud of dust when it hits hard objects.

This is definitely the one to go for on the US market in my opinion.

I ordered from them after reading about them on this forum. I think it's a great deal and almost time for me to order a refill. Thanks for the reminder.
