The problem with non-spherical ammo is that it tumbles. That does not mean it will be unprecise, slingshots are quite tolerant in this regard.

To avoid tumbling, firearms use rifled barrels to give the bullets a stabilizing spin. Doesn't work with slingshots.

The only way to achieve that is shooting feathered arrows or flechettes (short arrows with a hook right behind the tip). Especially flechettes work really well, but I am a bit afraid of hand hits to be honest.

Maybe it IS time to work on flechettes! Will think about a protection system for the fork hand.
