    Fisherman looking where to buy pellets to make "slinkies" sinkers - thank you

    Hi


    i'm making some slinkies (fishing weights in paracord) and my go-to supply of steel shots is the usa...and i cannot get there with the closed border...


    any tips on where to get essentially #4 buckshot pellets or .210 pellets (5mmish) I can incorporate into making my fishing weights…cheap is good lol


    thx

    What about buying 1/4 inch lead wire and cut to length...?

    I flatten one end and punch a hole...

    non-lead and cheap = pieces of nail or spike, nuts and bolts
    Never say 'whoa' in the middle of a mud hole.
