Yes, if it is just for the looks. No, if you need to find your ammo after shooting it.

Specialist, you shouldnt need the rare earth magnets...I believe those are just for the actual throwie part, so that they stick to metal..but i may be wrong... Get what I'm saying? If I'm wrong just correct me

@Specialist:
ilovetoblowthingsup (we REALLY need to abbreviate that :lol: ) is right, the rare earth magnets are just for making the throwies stick to things. All you need for the ammo is the batteries, the LED and the tape.
