The description said 9mm but they're all somewhere between 3/8" and 7/16" steel balls that I compared them to, not much variance from the median weight of about 21 grains if memory serves correctly. The best part? My 3.5yo gave one to her mother and told her it was a chocolate and the look on her face when she spit it out was classic! But back to the ammo. It's crazy how many new plinking spots you didn't realize you had when you have almost zero worries of ricochet and don't have to worry about bearings all over, I've been shooting far more often the past couple days and time hasn't exactly been in any type of surplus over this way. For anyone with a busy schedule clay just may help you get in more sling time. These look to fly pretty straight to around maybe 20 yards so they're perfectly acceptable plinking ammo

Just wondering, when they make the ammo do they sterilize it, or are you slinging earth germs all around from another country? I think i would have a problem importing this from ie. China if custom was doing its job.

Got a chance to stretch them out a bit today just to see how true they really fly using bands that were sending 54 grains at about 212 fps I think, the clays were doing lower 260's so they're probably slightly overpowered but didn't seem to matter. They were flying straight as steel out to what had to be close to 40 yards but any that veered off seemed consistent with bad form or release since the only time they veered off was when I shot a handful while sitting in the car. Honestly for the price and how accurate they are at realistic ranges I may just start shooting clay all the time, that little dirt nipple it leaves on direct impacts is unfortunately incriminating but awesomely satisfying and it's not like this state is gonna let me kill anything any time soon.

Good point, maybe running them through the oven for an hour or two wouldn't be such a bad idea just to be sure it's been "treated" in one way or another
