Can you make a video on using split lead shot? Similar to slit shot weight for fishing lures, take a soft lead ball and cut deep slits into the ball, but still have a sphere shape I'd like to know if the impact will allow the lead to deform along the slits flaring out to maximize damage. You can have different configurations in the slit depth and different orientations of the slits.


Can you make a sling shot that uses coil springs instead of flatbands?

Thanks and keep up the good work.

It would likely not. The velocity isn't there, and even if it were it just wouldn't open up I bet. It would just smash flat if hit something hard. Might split though if it hit just right and we were talking firearm like velocities, but even then it would be obscure and inconsistent. Stick with a round ball.
