    I am looking to buy some 1/2" steel balls for my slingshot. But I am not sure which one is cheapest.

    Is there like an elite store for slingshots and ammo where I can buy materials and supplies for cheaper than other places?

    That's the kind of thing you really need to shop around for. You can get 1/2" steel from Simple-Shot, but, with shipping it won't be the cheapest source. Ebay is usually the best place to look - look for vendors that offer free or low cost shipping. The problem is that listings are inconsistent, so you just need to poke around, vary your search terms (don't use 'slingshot ammo' as a search term, that usually jacks the price up). Use words like 'steel ball bearings' as an example. I have yet to find any vendor that could beat what I could find on Ebay.

    If you know any mechanics, they might be able to set you up. Plain carbon steel grinding balls are cheaper than chrome steel ball bearings. I have more luck searching for "bearing balls" than "ball bearings". Ball bearings, as a search term, tends to get me gadgets that have ball bearings built into them rather than just the metal spheres I want. If you find a good source, please share and I'll update my list.
