    Does any body think that batteries would make good ammo for some kind of contraption?

    They probably would. But they will leak nasty crap all over everything after one shot. Bad for the skin and toxic for the earth too.

    I did not think of that. I seen a video of a airgun that shoots double A batteries I thought it was a good idea,but not now.I'm just thinking of acid all over.

    Ebvironmental issues aside, batteries make good ammo for shepherd slings and staff slings.

    ^I bet they do^

    No, like I said, they are very heavy (they are made of lead after all) and very aerodynamic as well. I reckon they would be a bad thing to be hit by!

    Maybe if you wrapped them thoroughly in duct tape it would provide enough secure area to stop the battery case cracking and leaking when hitting softer targets?

    Obviously if you are shooting them at very hard wood backstops then they will definitely split but shooting them for practice at a bed sheet I wouldn't see them splitting.

    What are you thinking of shooting them at per se?

    I don't have a per sec number,but if I was to shoot them I would not shoot them fast because I wouldn't want them to explode on impact and get acid all over.

    The lithium comes from mountains in the middle east. It isn't as harmful as you would imagine or maybe it depends on the brand? Anyways... It would suck to be hit by.

    A member on here proposed ammo with bright LEDs and batteries in it.

    Encased in polycarbonate, the batteries would serve as the mass, and be reusable if you build your catch box right. I think it would be great at night. Yay tracers!:D

    However, with so much other ammo to choose from, who wants some that eats pouch, rubber, and you?
