Cheap 44 gram 7/8 steel ball ammo for consistency
Jul 10th, 2023 at 2:01am
 
The link will take u to a company I have been using for getting steel ammo for a year. Buy the ammo in CARBON STEEL, other steels are expensive. U can buy 100, 44 gram steel balls for 30 bucks here. That weight is the average weight of sling bullets in antiquity so I think they would be decent hunting ammo for smaller game like raccoons, rabbits, etc... if u can get a hit.

Thanks for the info!   BC doesn't charge for shipping in the US, which helps some of us out.   The cost sweet spot seems to be 100 balls.   They're silly expensive when you only get 10 and the additional savings when you get larger quantities isn't much.   I won't be able to retrieve many of the ones I sling, but at ~28˘ apiece, I can afford to treat myself to a little good ammo for a change.

I used to think this was going to be simple.

They sound like great ammo
1inch steel ball bearings from shaker mills have been my go too ammo for decades. So 7/8ths should be just fine
