3/8" ballbearings are sold as "slingshot ammo"

I agree with JSR - buy slingshot ammo/ball bearings instead... I used to have a lot of problems because of marbles - they aren't uniform so it was a real PITA to use them

No amount of access to ammunition can compensate for being Polish, so I'm fine ;)

if you're nice I might contact you with them - though I am not sure if they ship within EU

Even if they did it wouldn't help me, impossible to import anything ammunition shaped in epoxyland. Besides, I have a lathe and mill ;)
