    Hey there!<br>Due to lack of funding, i have gone to using peas as ammunition.<br>The "yellow" peas are 7-8 mm in diameter and weigh around 0.30 gram.<br>Chick peas are 9-11 mm in diameter and weigh on average 0.54g.<br><br>I use them for target practice in- and outdoors. The benefit is that some peas could actually sprout (outdoors) and grow a plant that, as a legume (Leguminose), enhances the nutrients in the soil. Legumes work with certain bacteria in their roots to bind nitrogen (N). So even if the plant does not live long enough to reproduce, there would still be a beneficiary effect. The pea producing food would of course be the ultimate goal.<br>Indoors it has the advantage of less destructive energy...<br><br>I use a very thin bandset on my slingshot and it works great. <br><br>Let me know what you think! Do you use similar ammunition?

    Acorns are nice and fat this time of year. They are about the size of a 50 caliber ball ammo, but they are free from my tree in the front yard...and they disintegrate on impact, stealthy like a ninja. Sure they're oval in shape so the accuracy outside of 30 feet is laughale, but seeing the wild arc is amusing to me.

    Eyeballs from slaughtered animals also work fine.
