My buddy Arthur found the answer to that question.

You could use nails or steel rod pieces instead of the carbon!

Question for you sling shot enthusiasts; It appears there are 1/4 and 5/16 inch ammo available for slingshots. At least in the US.

Do you know the exact dimensions and weight of each ball?
If you could measure with a caliper or micrometer it would be appreciated.

How consistent is the diameter and weight between them? Variability.

I am considering them as a projectile for a pneumatic design. Possibly auto or at least semi-auto.

I don't use small balls like that, my smallest ones are 9,5 mm (.38) and those weigh 3 Gramms (48 grains).

Thanks,

Another possibility:

2 holes about 1/4" apart at each end of the pouch.

Place finishing nail or a small wood dowel between the holes and wrap the leather around the nail.

The string will hold it tight.

The shear strength of the nail/dowel, the double leather thickness, and the full width of the leather pouch should be able to withstand any force we would care to apply.

Thanks for info.
I may consider that size if available in US.

9,5 mm = .3740 inches or almost 3/8 which is .3750 inches. or 9,525 mm.

Do they actually measure 9,50 mm or .380 inches which is 9,652 mm?

Need for barrel dimensioning.
