I couldnt get my hands on any stell bearings so I either shoot really small fishing sinkers as a buck shot or a 16mm one that fits my Paintball 'Rifle'/smoothbore. Only bad thing is because they are so soft when you shoot them at metal the side goes flat :P So far ive only put a dent in 1.5mm thick steel.

oh, actually, I do shoot 1/2 and 3/4 inch ball bearings as buckshot. cuts plywood, and thin metal, such as garage doors, in half, or leaves them held together by small bits of metal. :twisted:
