For a slingshot, what are other options for the little pocket that you load the ammo into besides leather? Answered


I know that a lot of slingshots use a leather strip, but that's not available for me, so i was wondering if i could use anything else like felt, cardboard, etc.

Anything that a non womans show would be made of.
anything that would be used to make a shoe such as sneakers and such, not synthetic boots though, would definitely be strong enough to use as a leather pouch.
leather is ideal as its leathery , and you need leathery materials for slingshot pouches.
also,
nothing which is woven, it will freigh /unwravel eventually.

The leather tounge from a pair of shoes or boots, rubber bicycle inner tube, old canvass, a few layers of duct tape, leather or vinyl from an old purse, a piece of an old seat cover, anything that is fairly strong and flexible.

+1. Anything strong enough to withstand the forces, and flexible enough to (a) wrap around the pellet and (b) release it smoothly ought to work.

 
Canvas would be my choice - Rolled and sewn or glued at the edges so it doesn't tear under tension.
