    Hi man!
    I'm gonna buy lead moulds for 12,13,14mm.
    I've searched on ebay and found not a lot for my country (italy)

    Are there somewhere at reasonable cost?

    11.3mm and 13.6mm (.445 inch .535 inch) sizes might be more common, as those are two of the most common sizes for musket ball ammunition.

    You can also get molds for spherical fishing sinkers. In the US, these come in ounce gradations. A 1 ounce lead ball would be about 16.8mm.

    Amazon.co.uk sells a 6/8 ounce lead ball mold, which would make approximately 15.3mm balls. They're charging £17.99, which is a pretty good price, and shipping from the UK should be less than shipping from the US, where these things can sometimes be easier to find. The name of the product is "TraceAce Tackle 6/8 Ounce Ball Weight Mould."

    I'm not sure there is such a thing as a perfectly round ball, but I'm sure its good enough for slingshot ammo.

    Well, Jörg uses them for his videos, which I would think is a pretty good endorsement. Also, the price is very good.
