The best slingshot ammo out there in my opinion is .440 lead balls for .45cal muzzleloaders. the .440's cut through the air well and pack one hell of a punch. A body shot with a .440 will take a rabbit or squirrel. A head shot will easily kill a racoon.

Never tried a blow gun but if you stop and think about it, there were a lot of people in Africa that got there every day meals with them just a short while back. Probably still do.
That looks like some great shooting Zinki. You must pratice a lot or is it just a natuaral with you. It used to be with me. Years ago. I used to kill the black birds in mama's garden all the time. She would say, Dennis, get your sling shot. Daddy brought ball bearings home from the mill for me to shoot. He would come in with a pocket full, which I know was stealing, but I figure he earned it. He gave his life to that company and died before his first retirement check ever came.
Maybe we all should start playing like kids again.

There is a suprising skill that comes to shooting a sling shot. Youv'e kinda got to get a feel for it. Iv'e had one for almost 2 or 3 yrs now and i'm acurate with a foot. I shoot 3/8" steel balls or just some plain wlamart marbles for targets. Iv'e tried the whole dozen bb's in the pouch to resemble bird shot but it gets real inaccurate fast. Since I live in forida the terrain is Ideal. I like to hunt around in real loose sugar sand so If I miss The varmint doesnt always know it like if I was using a gun or even a bow. Good Luck!!!

And would the bands the nurses use to check blood pressure work?
I can make the sling shot, custom fit handle and wrist brass and all but since seeing this thread I have been wondering about the bands.
My left hand is messed up pretty bad so I would have to make it to fit really good so I could use it. The wrist brase would probably need to reach close to my elboe plus I would have to shoot side ways.
Any thoughts about that???
I already have some pieces of 1/4" up to 7/16" rod in 1/16" steps. Of course it isn't chrome plated.
Looking at the pictures it looks like they use 5/16" or 3/8" rod. Am I close.
Ya'll have done went and got me wanting to make some sling shots again.
Thanks for any help and Merry Christmas.

Now, I don't know if those "blood pressure bands" would work or not....but I just bought some size 107 rubber bands the other day for something else...and looking at them, they should work pretty good for a sling shot...of course they are flat, and would need to be tied on, like the sling shots we used to make when we were kids.... but STAPLES, or any office supply store should have the #107 rubber bands.
........and Merry Christmas right back to you.

And by the way, just to toss this in...those look like the #107 rubber bands on his slingshot that I mentioned in the above post.
