    This is a horrible idea. Regular marker BBs ate bad for you AEGs homemade BBs would only be worse.
     
  5. I have to say, I don't think olive oil would be cost effective, I would use canola, or used motor oil from your lawn mower, it'l work much better, and be far more cost efficient.
    And, I would suggest powdered sugar over flour, it is a bolder white, and sticks to things much better, and adds an upside to face shots.

    I find old vegetable oil from my fryer much more cost effective. I get frys and market bbs. Plus the used fryer oil with grab the sugar much better and hold it.

    Add an egg an you got pasta.
     
  8. I still think used motor oil would be better, that way I get to mow my lawn, drive my car, and get budget BB's, but there's no reason not to mix oils, even more efficient!

    Even better. Then the bbs will stick to them instead of just marking them.

    Should've made the title "how to kill your gun as fast as possible".

    Look sniperGman, I'll say this the nice way- Marking ammo is BAD for your gun. Think about it. Your homemade marking ammo leaves the flour you use inside your gun- that is not good. It does the exact opposite of what your lube is doing. It dries up the moving parts which need lube in order to work properly.

    If this is to see your bullets on targets, why dont you just get those dirty birdy targets that "splatter" when the bullet hits?
