Recommended ammo? 6mm barrel.

Unread postAuthor: jmez1996 » Fri Jul 29, 2011 7:20 am

Anybody recommend anything that would work well as ammo? i normally use small screws and bolts but they tumble in the air and are very inaccurate.
my barrel is roughly 6-7mm inside diameter.
ball bearings are hard to find and generally roll inside the barrel
i would prefer not to have to buy anything online.
suggestions?
thanks :)

Is casting projectile out of lead an option? Otherwise a bolt and some hot glue or epoxy can make a suitable slug, and casting in a section of barrel material itself ensures a perfect fit.

Cut a short section of barrel material, put it on a hard smooth surface, drop a suitable bolt in head first and fill the tube with hot glue. Make sure the inner surfaces of the tube are lubed up with something slippery first to help extraction.

A bb is a ball bearing, just plastic... You can use popcorn, I know it sounds stupid but if it fits it will work. I am planning on buying a 50 pound bag both to use as ammo and to eat :lol:

I just tryed that about 5 minutes ago it doesnt work but what does if you take a screw and put hot glue on it and mold it with your fingers till it has an arrow look, and put in gun and shoot!!!

Wow... That took me a good minute to figure out what you were trying to say. Please use proper grammar.

If you get metal ball bearings you can put a magnet on the barrel so the ball bearing dont roll out and if you live in Adelaide Australia you can buy bbs from brickworks :)
