They were shot from a 1/2" pvc barrel, and the plastic cones are from the tops of caulk tubes.

You usually can re-use them unless the cone gets smashed in or the nail bends. I think I will try using harded concrete nails in the future.

Yeah it's a good idea but i did hear about these darts somewhere else but the do work really well i also use 2" tech screws cause they have more weight behide them and i melt the caulk tube so it fits my 1" barrel and man i just shot them at trees and man they just smash into the tree and shred it up. but since the tech screws are really strong they last ages and since my dad is a bricky i get them for free and i got like 100 each time. so i got a endless surply. but besides that they work really well!
