As throwing projectiles for the Boker Plus RBB Reality-Based Blade Slingshot slingshot, steel balls from a bearing, nuts, small pebbles, round fishing lead sinkers, chopped lead were used.
The best indicators in accuracy and firing range are achieved when using steel balls from the bearing and round fishing sinkers. Weather conditions in the form of a crosswind practically do not affect the accuracy of a slingshot using such shells. The ranges are small, and the initial velocity of the projectile is high. With all other types of shells, normal firing accuracy was not achieved. Maybe this is just a matter of practice.
Using the Boker Plus RBB Reality-Based Blade Slingshot slingshot, you can hunt frogs, toads, sparrows, pigeons and other small birds, squirrels and other small animals. The lethal force of a slingshot directly depends on the initial speed, that is, how much the throwing tourniquet was pulled, and where the projectile hit. Sometimes prey is only stunned, but usually this time is enough to get close and finish it, if of course there is such an opportunity.
