Brutal 3/4" Ammo

Unread postAuthor: pneumaNINJA » Wed Mar 14, 2007 6:56 pm

I'm not sure how much they vary in size, but a steel mouse ball with the rubber coating stripped off fits pretty nicely inside 3/4" pvc, and with a bit of wadding, makes a disgustingly powerful, almost unbreakable ammuntion with a large mass compared to the size.
