Hi mates,
The places in my area (not much) sell the Daisy packs of 3/8 ammo' for 5 dollars or so, I believe the qty count is 75. Is this reasonable? If not, where do you go to get cheap ammo? Lately I been shooting clay ammo, and it works great for at the house shooting, but would also like some steel balls for hunting and the sorts. What would be a good option?

That's about what they are here in Canada, and it's frankly too much. To get a decent price for steel (I'm guessing you're in the uk?) I would contact 'Balls of Sussex' on Facebook, he's got amazing pricing and he always throws extras in. Hope that helps, happy shooting!

I only know a UK one:

https://www.ballandrollerstore.com/catapult-ammo/

They offer modest quantities at good prices too, whereas some suppliers push you towards buying 10,000 balls. Their website is clear and simple to use.

I like clay ammo too, and making it.

US$ 5 for 75 steel BB's in 3/8 inch (roughly 8 mm) seems quite expensive, depending on what material they're made of i.e. stainless steel is pricey.

You may want to have a look at Aliexpress, assuming that they provide free shipping to the US:

Chinese-made steel ammo that came along with a couple of slingshots I ordered is OK, no problems there.

For comparison sake, the German seller "Kugel Winnie" sells 8 mm ammo at EUR 2 for 100 BB's. That's good value for money, and what I've purchased from them is of a very good standard.

Or, you can simply go to my website and order it for a lot less as well... all steel ammo is $2.95 per pound... so about 125 balls of 3/8" are $2.95... 200 balls of 5/16 are $2.95 as well...

We also have lead, clay and 8mm airsoft too

As always, I really appreciate the advice, will definitely take a look! I never heard of 8mm airsoft before, sounds interesting and fun.
