Please remember to spend some of your own time to look what you are looking for, there is even a sticky in this section that gives you a few ideas. You could've also searched this section and found multiple results, but for some reason you didn't search.

Those stubby camera batteries work really well; they fit very tightly. If only they weren't so darn expensive...

Try a small rock with a leaf as a sabot. Make sure the rock is small enough that it doesn't get jammed. I tried this with my 1/2" and it is very accurate.
