Default Small stellated dodecahedron

Perhaps the ultimate 'spherical' ammo shape.
making them in volume would be tricky though...
it doesn't have a natural parting line, so you'd need a rubber mold, or to cut them a bit after casting.

This file exists on shapeways, so you could order one in stainless steel, but it's pretty expensive.

getting them in lead would be hectic.

Do they come in a smaller size?

That was essentially the first nice picture of the shape I came across, (on wikipedia, pretty sure it's cardboard) and while I'm sure a huge steel one could be fired, yeah, it's a touch large

That particular shapeways link is to one that is actually 2.118 cm (0.834 inch)
