depends on th size of the pouch but i think that for a powerful slingshot designed with hunting in mind a 12 or 14 mm steel ball is the best because you still get a high velocity but there is still plenty of weight for when it hits the target.

I use 1/2 inch steel for target and 44 cal. lead if hunting as they both weigh the same! The 1/2 Steel is easier on the backstop and not as nasty as lead. I have found no MM shot that does this! -- Tex

On doit chercher pour les balles propre. Il y a sur l'internet, surement.

The vote failed to specify the medium. For all around use, I shoot .36 lead, though I'd like to have larger, say 10-14mm.

Not to get off topic, but why is it so difficult to quote or edit a post now? Seems I have to use the full editor to make any small change- and quotes? Unless I include EVERY quote from the entire thread forget it.

What issue are you having? I just hit the quote button on the bottom right of your post to quote the above (then I just removed the unrelated text).

Anyway the duplicate quotes have ceased for the moment. When I would try to remove it, the program would tell me I had removed more quotes than there were originally and would utterly refuse to do it. I don't get it?

I've been shooting a lot of .32 lead. Not a popular choice, but I like it's pellet gun like behavior.
