So let me start by saying that I suck at making slugs, it's a sad but true fact. I'm looking for a semi-affordable dart that feeds in a hopper when cut down (if not half length already).

I know that captainslug uses the men-gun darts, but I was wondering if anybody could present any alternatives and a reson why you like them.

Thanks in advance!

Glue domes. They shoot the farthest but they also hurt the most so many wars don't allow them.

Actually, Slugs feed the most consistently, in my experience.  That said, it completely depends on the blaster.  My SGRL feeds /everything/, except for koosh darts.

I'm sorry if my title was not completely clear, I'm looking for a non-homemade alternative to slugs that is hopperable like captainslug's men-gun darts

As I stated, this depends both on which blaster you are using and how you construct the hopper.  I didn't specifically ask, but I was hoping that would encourage you to give us more information.

like captainslug's men-gun darts


There you go. Buy men-gun darts and cut them down. Cut down FVJs work well too.

mmmmm tommorow if I'm not busy I can produce a writeup for SCS (Suction cup slug) which are a cut down USC with a felt pad glued on,
Those hop but you need a wide bore barrel.

The thing is with hopping blasters is you need to have the right barrel material and right dart fit. For instance, you could have beige foam and a tight CPVC barrel which, leads to them not working. We really need your hopper material because what is optimized for a certain fit and blaster can vary if you change one of 3 variables. (dart diameter, barrel material and blaster power) 

With the right set up you can get your blaster to fire nearly any dart,

It's a knifty wye made by captainslug (he made the blaster too). I'm 87% sure the barrel is made from PETG. Hope that helps.

If your only objection to slugs is that you suck at making them, there are users here who will be happy to sell you some. I use shandgators, and have been very happy with them. Equivalent pricing to aftermarket darts too.

The ACC Gen 2 hard tip stefans are really good. They have very high quality foam, their tips are well made and balanced and they are also extremely affordable at just 9AUD for 100. They should feed through hoppers pretty consistantly too. You should definately try them, plus 9 dollars? You've got nothing to loose!

this popped up again and I just want to reiterate, SCS and a wide bore barrel. It's not hoppable straight out but these fly very straight, and if you buy a ton of USCs they also have the ability to be superstock ammo. AND USC darts are cheap as fuck (3 cents each about, wayy cheaper than every alternative)

The easiest hoppering darts with a conventional wye hopper are sillydomes with cornstarch, followed VERY closely by slugs, followed  (not closely at all) by sillydomes without cornstarch.

 However, since sillydomes are difficult to make and costly to buy (0.25ish. comparable to stock darts), you will probably be better served by China darts, most likely Artifact darts or cut down Men Gun darts.  Neither one hoppers easily, but both are soft enough to shoot people with and are inexpensive, so it's probably worth the fuss to MAKE them hop.   See Captain Slug's or Zorn's enhanced hoppers.  Sometimes just putting a little more effort into beveling the dart entryway will make the difference for a particular blaster.

The SCSs may or may not be great and the solution to all problems nerf.  I'm skeptical that they hop easily mostly because the guy who tells me they do puts like 14 springs in his blasters, and a sufficiently powerful blaster will hop anything.
