He guys,

I am sure some of you know by now that I am really new to slingshots. I am planning on taking my slingshot to my girlfriends house to a family gathering to get brownie some points and let her cousins play with it(highly supervised of course(they are kind of young)).

The house is out in the woods and I am not sure if we can build a place to shoot and catch steel rounds. This would mean that steel rounds would be lost forever also that we would only have less that 120 shots. So I did some thinking and came up with the idea of trying peanut M&M's. I say trying because I am writing this late at night and can't give it a shot now.... I will tomorrow morning. The M&Ms will have to be frozen for this to work best I would think.

Does anyone know of any other cheep food product that can be bought in bulk and used as organic slingshot ammo??

skittles work great, and rocks, the more round the better, bio-degradable air soft rounds

i use sixlets from time to time.. they are a little soft, so i freeze them and they work great!! welcome to the obsession, from now on everything you see will be a slingshot or ammo

also, if you have limited ammo, try building a catch box, similar to this one
it took about $15 dollars and 15 minute to build

Hard, round candy ... buy in bulk. It is cheap and biodegradable. And it has enough mass to give you a reasonable range without going wonky in the air. But rocks are very cheap and pretty easy to come by.

Hang a sheet or blanket over a clothes line or rope between a couple of trees as a backstop.

Cheers ..... Charles
