AA batteries, marbles, Sharpies...

The list is endless. I strongly suggest you do some searching before posting little piddly topics like this. It takes time away from the current, more important issues/topics.

Depends on the tools you have. :D

Daisy slingshot ammo (14mm marbles) and 1/2" ball bearings work pretty good in 1/2" type M copper.

Hey gippetto do a how-to on that mould. And as for 1/2 AA betteries are my preferred ammo.

@STHorne where do you get your marbles from? My marbles dont fit.

I've found that about 40mm of high tensile steel wire pushed through a piece of cork that is cut to size (from a wine bottle) makes an excellent dart.

It take a bit of time to make them, but well worth the effort.

You can make real simple darts with some foam, tape and a coat hanger. But marbles are my preference, especially because they shatter if on impact of you shoot them fast enough.
