Stopped in a craft store and got some air dry modeling clay to make ammo balls. they have MANY colors, cost was around $4.00 for a small package, I made several sizes from about 5/8 inch down to 1/4 inch, tomorrow, or when they are cured will see how they shoot, as far as sizes and all, right now They seem to be quite light, I am afraid they will not have enough weight for MY shooting, will let you know how turns out, OH I got around 130 balls of different sizes out of the pak, if they were all 3/8 could probably get around 400.

I did shoot airsoft bb's but they are very light weight and you will get very short band life At around 6 meters they fly nice. It can penetrate one side of a can.

i'm using 2 nuts with a piece of lead inside them to hold them together which works pretty well but on impact like hard things walls etc they will move apart from each other

Airsoft BBs, even the .20 and heavier ones definitely aren't suitable, the true ball bearings 6 and 6.25 mm would definitely be OK for a very light bandset, although they would only be suitable for plinking...

Are you talking about airsoft bb's or air gun pellets?
I was talking about airsoft bb's and they penetrate 1 side of a soda can now compare to this airgun bb's .177, .... .25 heavy weight would be much better . I have found .25 pellets weighting 1.7 gramms I dont know the exect weight of a 6mm ball bearing but 9.5mm weight 3.3 gramms 7.95 weight 2.3 around so 6 mm could be acctualy less then a .25 heavy weight
