Ice slugs, gumballs/jawbreakers, d-cell batteries with some duct tape, apple cores, etc..

The possibilities are endless, if it remotely fits, shoot it.

Milk jug caps make really nice sabots for just about anything.

try using foam golf balls from like mc sports or something those work phenomenal as a backing for anything you want to shoot. it is a perfect seal because they can squish down

my friend came to school one day with a gargantuan metal marble that fit perfectly into 1.25 inch PVC pipe. it weight like 5 pounds.......

yeah, if your wondering, i shot it, and it managed to lay waste to a cynder block, and after detroying the cynder block it buried itself nearly a foot into the ground.........

GGDT estimated its FPS at like 80 FPS, so i dont know why it did so much damage............

I use those foam noodles you buy for swimming pools they work great for wadding plus they come in many sizes and are cheap, just cut them into 2" lengths. You can get like 36 plugs out of a 6' noddle for less then $5.

Is it just me, or does the OP of this thread not search at all, and makes us spoon feed him?
