Paper cones are not for high presures.
You can use nail with pen cap filled with hot glue.
This is what i made,but dont use so much glue or the dart will start tumbling.

Also,you can make them using this method.

I've seen members use the tips off of caulk tubes with nails. Seemed to work pretty good.

Well I am using plastic pipe,a little bit smaller than 1/2 inch copper tubing.If it doesnt fit correctly just wrap it with electrical tape.
The second method is also good,but little harder to make. :wink:

Another idea, take a length of 1/2" pipe, and fill it with water, then stick in the freezer over night. Done, premade ice ammo, and I hear it works really well. Plus as it melts it greases up your barrel so it moves faster.

Melting ice turns into grease? I learn something new every day :P

No it doesn't turn to grease.... I mean it lubricates the barrel... :banghead:
