I don't know what to do when it comes to dart buying. I usually just have a giant bowl/bucket of stock darts used with modded guns in speed-loaders, like in my couplered Fauxbow or Nitefinder. So when I wan't small darts, I turn to cutting down stock darts to 1.25 inches and dubbed my (I think) invention "Dragon Darts." They serve me well, but if anyone could tell me how to make slugs, or what 3rd party darts to buy for what things, that would be awsome.

Get 3rd party darts unless you're hopping them, only than is it worth making slugs.

Would FVJ's be good for speedloading into speedloaders? I use 1/2 cpvc (loose fit) or 1/2 hot water pipe (some sort of plastic - for a tight fit). What darts do you recomend for a tight or loose fit?

ps: If I am not easy to understand, it's because I got food poisioning last night and hurled the last three meals I had at 1 in the morning

It's almost impossible to single-load full length darts without a ramrod, at least in my experience. Use a breech, or cut the FVJs down to Stefan length.

So if I make like a 1.25 inch (dragon dart length) FVJ, it would work with 1/2 inch cpvc (with loose fit) speedloader? Also, what darts and what dart fit does anyone reccomend for a couplered fauxbow? (if you tell me, I will take it into consideration when I choose)

Also, i'm feeling better. Havent thrown up since, but i'm still out of it.

And finally, thanks The2ndBluesBro, Snoopy Doggy Doge and Shandsgator8 for helping me with a reletively new (only 1 year nerfing, and a week on nerfhaven) hobbie of mine.

Update:
I have made slugs out of FrostKing FBR and 1/2 inch rubber non slidey (No clue what they're called) pads, held together with superglue. They work well, but I think they need more weight on the tip. I already made a batch
