jsut as a word of warning to you guys, if you plan on using styrofoam cups as wadding, always use it with something heavy, rocks, bbs, water, food...so on... because with a golfball, the cup explodes around the unsealed edge of the golfball resulting in styrofoam shooting 20ft and the ball shooting about 10. it makes a loud bang, and they arnt reusable ---just a word of advice
my favorite things to use it papertowels and cut up t-shirts. They work for wadding as well as cleaning the hairspray off the threads.

I put a paper towel down my 2 inch barrel then drop a golf ball down. (Because I cant find a golf ball barrel anywhere.) It works really good.

Heres my other post: I found that if you cut the top off of a pudding cup, the bottom makes the perfect wadding. also, if you cut the top off of a bottle it makes good 2" wadding and if u take a propel fitness water bottle and unscrew the top, file down the bottom, and cut the grooves of the outside it makes a neat little test projectile for a 1" barrel

The local 99 cent store had those "Fun Noodles" for the swimming pools the other day.

Has anyone had any luck with these? Figured for a dollar you can't go wrong. They are ike 3" diamater and 5' length.
