It is staggering how they can supply things for so little money. :o

It would have cost more just to send one thing through the post

The pouch arrived this morning, it's good quality but it's that fake leather (the good quality stuff) or the leather has been fabric backed, but for 1.66 I cannot rearly complane.

some years ago me and a friend did some testing for catapult ammo, we found steel balls were to light, to get the weight needed to get some power the ball had to be so big it had a loopy flight path due to air resistance/drag. we found .36 cal lead ball were perfect, any smaller and they got fiddly to handle, any bigger and they had a pronounced trajectory due to the weight but there are heavy enough to give some power and small enough to minimize drag so had a reasonably flat flight path.
last night i was reading a book called Hell i was there by Elmer Keith (one of the most famous shooters in the world, as a kid he had found that .36 lead balls were perfect for catapults. im not going to argue with one of the most well respected shooters ever.

Yep! :P
Update on the 99p catapult, a package arrived, it contained just the 3 rubber bands, the seller had changed the listing so instead of the catapult it was just the bands (the picture and discription was for the catapult, now if you scroll down it just shows the bands) contacted the seller no response, contacted eBay and they refunded the 99p as the seller did not reply within the time frame.
I had to order another at double the price :(
