I always hear about how marbles are a perfect fit for 1/2" pvc, but all the ones i have are too big, and i have to shoot them w/ 3/4" and wadding. My question was, do the marbles fit schedule 40 pvc or some other kind. Also, if they do fit sched 40, where can you get some that fit?

Ive heard that regular catseye marbles fit good in 1/2 SCH 40 but im not sure. Go to a craft store. They usually have different sized marbles.

slingshot ammo anyone? They are a perfect fit in 1/2" SCH 40.

The biggest type of slingshot ammo at your local hardware store that is. But it's pretty expensive, $3.50 for a bag of 100 :?

but if you use a back stop and re-use them, it is worth every penny
