Fishing sinker ammunition?

Unread postAuthor: jmez1996 » Fri Oct 28, 2011 6:17 am

What does everybody think about using small spherical lead fishing sinkers as a substitute for bb's or pellets? Would they work?

or even these? http://www.sz-wholesale.com/uploadFiles ... 537742.jpg

I'm not sure about the diameter of any of them but I have seen some that look the same size as 6mm bb's.

cheers.

being hollow may be a problem but not to the improvisor, but i do like the second link.
i have thought it over many times.... 'what to use for ammo' and inevitably 'how much will it cost'
you can buy a ball sinker mold and pour your own without the wire for the line hole so you get a solid ball but these generally need a lot of clean up.
i did find this interesting clip on youtube

however negate the wood and use aluminum or steel drilled on drill press to use as the mold held together with either g-clamps or bolted through.

another nice link.
