Aussies tend to use beads as substitutes, of course they have a hole through them which reduces efficiency somewhat but needs must when the devil drives.

If I could be a rod, are you building a sniper rifle, you could fill a piece of barrel with epoxy or hot glue

umm, did you just ask for something similar to a spherical object?

Im sorry to sound rude... but measure a BB (or ask for a size) and find ANYTHING that is the same size.

Air soft bb's are 6mm
copper bb's are mostly .177 cal.

i have purchased these and they get through customs, when you buy them tell the seller to mark it as slingshot ammo and it WILL get through I have done it before.

If you can live with crappy 0.12g bbs then this is a seller in australia.

I have like a million posts around here saying that you can get these bb's and easton x7 eclipse size 1714 arrow shaft for a perfect ammo/barrel combo but all the aussies around here just seem to ignore me... Like its too hard to buy things on the internet or something.
