Mini Spud Gun Ammo

Unread postAuthor: JDSpud » Sat Feb 03, 2007 3:30 pm

Ok i have made a few minis and i havent found the perfect ammo to use. My barrel is just a regular b.i.c pen body. I have tried raisins(not bad but they get teh barrel really sticcky and junky) I have also usd q tips which are pretty sweet but want it to go further. Also i have tried popcorn seeds but some are so small and fall right out of the barrel and some are to big and create to much pressure and shoot the pill bottle cap 30 yards behind me. Any other ideas would be awesome.

i use q-tips cause they fly straight, airsoft bb's, u could try a .22 pellet, but that may be dangerous. Pretty much anything that fits in the barrel!

Yes, airsoft bbs work really good for minis. A pen model called scripto stick pen medium fits airsoft bbs perfectly. And to stop things from falling through, melt the back end of the pen and bend it in.

i agree with airsoft BBs i use a pen barrel for my purell mini that i made
the thing is though the barrel is slightly larger than the BBs so youl have to take a nail or something to make a stop oin the barrel or a dent to keep it from sliding into the chamber

I like to use spitballs, safe enough to shoot at people too.

use a .22 shell (make sure there is no bullet in it just the shell) grind down the ridge on the end to get it to fit tight

I use q-tips, cut in half, airsoft bb's. potato slugs, but they build up a lot of pressure, so you may not like that. I once cut the end piece of the pen and was able to shove the whole thing into the barrel. It worked great, until I lost it the first time I shot it.

30 yards? I want your mini! :lol:

Just use whatever you have laying around that fits tightly in your barrel. I've found that white pill bottles that are about 3 inches long rarely lose thier lids. (Then again, it is me...)
