Go to one of your retail stores, and look in the sport section and buy sling shot amo. They make them out of stainless steel as well as ceramics. They make them in three different calibres. If not get it from the Ebay or use air rifle BBs. Although copper is very soft metal. The purpose of what you want to use it for will determine the type materials

buy large fishing weights (cannonball size) and melt them down and make a mold for them.

If you're looking for bearings, they are really not very similar to buckshot-- harder metal, better polished. Try a good hardware store; they may stock ball bearings in at least a few sizes, and you mjight be lucky enough to find the size you need. If not, try mail-order -- for bearings, not shot.

did i ask for bearings............no i asked for something like buckshot i dont want the opposite i want the same

OK. In that case I go with the fishing-line weight suggestion as the closest approximation you're likely to find.

yes but in the comments i meantioned they dont sell it in bulk packs

Dunno what to tell you then. Contact fishing equipment manufacturers and see if you can get the weights in bulk. Or buy a brick of lead, build a shot tower, and cast your own. Or find something else which will serve the purpose. Or find a legal way to buy what you need. Good luck.

how would i build a scale shot tower this question could ern you best answer

Any fishing-tackle-type sporting shop should be able to sort you out. Fishing tackle shops sometimes sell lead shot. Otherwise, talk to gunsmiths etc - you need a license to buy guns and gunpowder, but not the loose buckshot (which gunsmiths often stock for those people who like to refill their own cartridges).

yes i like your idea about fishing because i go fishing actually ive just come back from fishing but the problem is they sell the shot in tiny packages not in large or bulk quantities

Buy it off Ebay !

Did you find any skateboard-wheels? L

no my dad got some nsk bearings from work n just smashed em up
