I know of the clay that you are talking about and it is really great for crafts and stuff. I guess that it is better than firing actual clay around at people but it still doesnít go well with nerf.
I hope that I am not alone in my opinion on what nerf is and isnít. I know that my friends and I do like paintball and bb-gunning as well as nerf, but I donít like the idea of mixing any of those.
In summary, good idea in general, but I donít think that it is a good idea for the welfare of nerf.

For me, since I remember a time before Nerf blasters, I associate the word with the foam. Everything "Nerf" has been made out of either foam rubber or foam plastic. Modeling clay musket balls are fun, but they don't fall within my personal definition of Nerf.

I don't know about that shit. I do know that when you got shot with a musket ball in the Civil War it gave you gangrene and they cut your legs off. Even if you were shot in the arm, your fuckin legs were still goners. That's vicious shit. Don't fuck with the musket ball.
Stefans would technically be more aerodynamic because they reduce the drag created when the air rushes in behind the projectile.
Anyways, I'm intrigued. Fuck the West si-ide.

I have ton of that stuff guys. When it sets and hardens, it becomes very light, and I don't think it would be a good ammo type. It does feel foamy though... but again, I express my opinion that this isn't a nerf ammunition. I like foam... not clay.
That sounds like model magic. Honestly, I think it'd be too light to work well.
Not in the game anymore, but it was great while it lasted. Thanks for the great years of fun, NH!

On the subject of whether it's nerf or not, I think that it is. Using C02 on a nerfgun eliminates pumping, which changes what seperates nerf with paintball. This new type of ammo is no different than the different ways stefans have evolved over the years into the zero dart and likewise.
The problem with converting to a new dart system, if a breech was made for this type of ammo, it wouldn't fit regular darts but if the darts were still loaded down the barrel, these and stefans could easily coexist. These "bruiser" darts could be easily adapted to clip systems. This raises the problem of easily having a huge payload for a single weapon and even using hoppers.I can see people using paintball barrels with these. Even worse, shooting them out of PB guns. The gap between paintball and nerf does not need to be bridged.
All in all, these darts seem fine when used alone, but with the shape advantage (darts must be loaded in one direction, balls like these could be loaded anyway like a paintball) and similarity to paintballs, I can easily see people using this one similarity between the two sports and mixing them.
Yes, give us information, pics, ranges, all of that. If the community wants this ammo to be shunned, there's nothing you can do about it except continue to use it by yourself or give it up. If everyone accepts it, the bruiser dart (even though it technically isn't a dart anymore) will add to the fun people have in nerf, as long as it isn't adapted to be used in conjunction with paintball. Though we at nerf haven have a tendency to stretch limits.

but reloading the 27 could be problematic.
No it's so simple it's not even funny. All you need is a piece of of pipe the same size as your barrel that can fit the 27 balls. Then cap one end of the pipe, and put a coupler on the other end large enough to connect the loading tube and the barrel. Now all you have to do is connect the loading tube to the barrel, turn the gun upside down, and viola your reloaded
Also does anyone else find it ironic that we get "the nerf musket ball" about the same time we get the "combustible powered nerf gun"?

Read the Code of Conduct.
The first three rules are:
- Don't post unless you have something to say
- Avoid AIM-style spelling (lol, u, ne, ppl, etc)
- Use capitalization and punctuation correctly

The bullets used in the Civil War were very much like Stefans, as in their backs. The heat from the rifle shooting the bullet would cause the back to expand and seal off the barrel, which lets pressure build up behind the bullet and gives it more power, very much like how air causes the Stefan to seal up the barrel and, like the Civil War bullet, gives it more power.
Any statistics on the accuracy of these new "darts"?
