As far as I know, Kane only sold foam to metal-free dart makers (darts like sillydomes, maybe AMIORS or VANS) but nowadays has stopped doing this. If you really want some PM or email him or something.

Don't make slugs.  Try artifact darts or cut down waffle-darts (Men-gun used to be the thing, but now there are other different things).  Making silicone domes is cool and all, and if you're good you can do better than China, but for my time/money I'd rather just buy some artifact darts or whatever waffles the cool kids are using these days.  Wye hoppers won't work quite right in most cases, but there are a lot of tricks and tweaks to improve that if you must use a hopper.

Wait, what are you asking? Kind of hard to understand with the lack of grammer...

You can buy silicone darts of ebay, and cut them down for NIC level wars. Honestly if you want half length darts. don't make slugs. Just buy some cheap third party dart and cut it down. I'd recommend ekind waffles, men gun, or little valentine darts. Since you want silicone domes for some reason, buy a silicone tip dart and cut it down to your desired length.

I do have some molds left that I'd sell for $15+shipping.  OJParkour is done with dartsmithing and he has a bunch as well.  If you want to get one made that is like mine, I used a 1/2" or 3/8" HDPE sheet, and ball-endmilled 7/16" diameter spherical holes to a depth of .200" (slightly less than a full hemisphere.  Others have taken the opposite approach).  Mine were in an 8x8 grid (64 spots) on 6" square sheets.
