That's impressive. Those were some very lethal shots.

Thanks guys!  I am always amused that so many people consider sling a toy.

Blimey that must have been a fast throw.
Your videos are always entertaining. 

Loved that last shot of the chair. there just something particularly comedic about it...

Great video as always Timpa!  I wasnít too surprised by the metal ammo since itís dense, hardened bearing steel going up against a soft, thin sheet metal, but I really didnít expect that rock to penetrate as well as it did. Thatís impressive!

Same. I've put big dents in metal pans but never gone through one. I might need to find some thinner metal and try and do the same :D

Hope we get a video!

in fact, this ammunition was made of ordinary steel.
By the way, they sparkle nicely. Below is a picture of the spark, compared to me:

Leave it to timpa to surprise an engineer in the matters of metal.
