Steel ball bearings are generally regarded as the very best projectile for slingshots and catapults. Each size has its own specific attributes...smaller ammo for target, larger for hunting. Also, each bandset will have a 'sweet spot' for its own particular ammo. With the ammo sampler pack, you can have the opportunity to try some of each size we stock.
You will receive in the ammo sampler 1/2# (0.5 pounds) of each of the following sizes:
- 1/4" (6.35mm)-- approx. 220 pieces
- 5/16"(8mm)--approx. 100 pieces
- 3/8"(9.5mm) -- approx. 60 pieces
- 7/16"(11mm) --approx. 40 pieces
- 1/2"(12.7mm) --approx. 25 pieces
Sorry, not available internationally.
It is great to see the different sizes and what size I need to order.
I order this because it is almost impossible to find and buy some of these different sizes. I should have ordered 4 of them so that I would have enough of each size. The only coomplaint was the bags they were shipped in. All of them ruptered except one, so i spent the first 30-minutes sorting them. I have to admit my cat helped. In fact, she found two the next day that I had missed. The bags are tooo thin and the seal not strong enough. That is what empty pill bottles are for, right?
If you don't know what size pellet your slingshot shoots best, this is the product for you.
This is a good deal you can buy the sample pack and then buy the ones you like to shoot
I love the sampler as you receive a variety of ammunition to test out. Although the caliber is written on each bag, the writing rubs off quite easily and was illegible by the time the set arrived. So I recommend SimpleShot using a permanent marker or, even better, place white labels on each bag using a strong adhesive. If each caliber were in its own zip-lock bag, then this set would be 120% cool! However, as they are now, they are not in Ziploc bags, so it's only 95% cool. Also, be forewarned, although the shipping box is small, the package is quite heavy!
the steel shot [finally]arrived,thanks USPS for the 10 day delay,
the 1/4" and 3/8" I was already familiar with,but the 5/16",7/16",and 1/2" were all new to me.they all arrived shiny and ready,and shoot very well,i really like the 1/2" Way better than marbles.i will definatley be buying more!
thanks again ;
This is an affordable sampler to try different size ammo with your slingshots. Finding the right size ammo to match the sling shot and bandset is one of the ways to improve your accuracy. Slinging the big steel included is also fun, whether you hunt or not.
I got the sampler becouse I was not sure what size of steel ammo I wanted to shoot. Big savings of money not buying a size I did not like. Now I know just what I want. To me it saved me money.
