@ NooC, Vetryan, Sarosh and Morphy........

SerKraus has already given up desire for food, transport, a home and love in pursuit of cheap reusable ammo.

If any of you are offering to join our ammo working group then have at it

My outlook on life is Aristotalean; on seeing an Acorn I see a potential oak tree rather than Plato's view that it is a failed copy.
Look forward to meeting at Slingfest 2022.

The only thing I want in this life is cheap but quality ammo.



Whoops, I was so exited by my last post being my favourite number that I misquoted my noble partner in Cri......... Err, research.
Error rectified.👍

Not to be melodramatic lol...but seriously in regards to pushing slinging forward this topic is more important than you know.  Grin

I am considering joining. Do we get to wear robes? Is there a hazing ritual?  What about a group chant or theme song?  Is the working group working under an umbrella standards body? If so... ASTM? Or ASME?  Or maybe IEEE? No. That would be weird.

Making a standardised ammo or reusable ammo has a initial question.

What is the desired use of the ammo.

Hunting
Distance
Warfare
Targets

All of them would have different parameters.

Shapes and materials would vary

What are we trying to build because consistent shape and weight items are everywhere.

@ Mersa, Stated parameters in thread, sport slinging.
@ NooC, B.Y.o.R. (bring your own robes). CAA (Civil aviation authority).

Cool

Seriously, develop first. Test and (if necessary) ISO.

I don’t know Mersa. I think razor glandes would work for all of those situations.

I have one word for you all. Spammo.

EDIT: 2 words actually... Crabunition.

Just depends on whether the knight I’m slinging at has a shellfish allergy or not. “Morphy uses Crabunition, it is very effective!”

For sport slinging I think Jaegoors rusty balls or some standard ball is sufficient.
Even riverstones are easy to get in similar weights and sizes.
Clay probably wins slightly.

For me I think a hunting glande is the only ammo worth a novel design.

Dammit Morphy! I can't just have a series of your quotes as my signature on here! I'm going to need you to be less hilariously quotable.

You call it hilariously quotable but my wife has a different phrase to describe me.  Cool
