Hello,

who is using glass marbles as regular ammo here?

Lot of people are using heavy ammo like lead or steel rounds with strong bands.
Am i alone to use those cheap ammo?

I use my slingshot for plinking when i go out with the dog, and i find marbles very accurate.
My favorite targets are soda cans, and i manage to it them pretty often up to 20m.

I don't hunt small game, but i took numerous pigeons with marbles, generally while standing on higher branch in trees. So i can say they have enough power to take down birds, pigeon size.

The thing i learned, is that i have to lower the power of the bands, to avoid hand slapping, painfull, especially by cold weather.

Your opininon?

in belgian competetion, marbles are the ammo of choise.
Indoor , 10m target shoot on rubber disks.
Low shatter rate, and good re-use of ammo, when we empty a bucket of 3000, we have to discard about 20 to 30.
Most marbles die when a chip breaks off by hitting a metal part of the shooting stand.

Also, marbles cost 60 eurocents for 1000 when bought in bulk, in belgium.
hello Deimos, are you sure, 60 cents for 1000!

I am very interested!
Where are you living in Belgium?
