I now that stuff you are searching bro but I don't think it's available online. Better you search alternative way. Many scrap venders do sale bearing balls even you can find them as new. You need to give them specific measurements. But it will be costly that's what I can say and it's not considered as Ammo.

But bycycle wheel ball bearing balls may be too small as a sling shot load. I use glass marble size clay balls. For my catapult ( Gulel) One of our helping hand in our farm made them for himself and I used to take from him. He use to bake them in wood fire which they use for cooking.

Which sling u r using bro. And what is the size of the load. I use clay balls baked in fire pit over night and I use them in fields only. But not a sling shot but use in a catapult. My loads are works very well in pest control in our farm. Now a days Firing a gun unnecessarily draw trouble so I choose this alternative options.

Sorry to mention. Approx size is 15 mm +/-3mm as all are hand made and approximately weight 6/7 GM. If any one can practice a little then it's very effective in 25/30 MTR range.

Don't know what restrictions that you have there as far as shipping these into your country, but I was paying about $7.00 US for 70 3/8" Sling Shot Balls from a local gun shop than found it on Amazon and eBay, 500 rounds in a plastic container for $11.95 delivered since I have a Prime Amazon Account.

The Geese and Deer on my property are very unhappy.

I realize that this is not what you asked for (steel spheres), but I have used children's glass marbles fairly successfully. Found in toy stores and variety stores, they usually come in a small bag and are very reasonable. They also have sufficient mass to be effective, although they are usually somewhat large.

Yep. Right size is glass marbles for catapult and I used them for some time but then I realised that it unnecessarily litter the place with shredded glass as the marbles whenever hit a hard object used to shatter. Then one of our helping hand give me this option of clay balls and I am successfully using them. Except labour it's vertualy free of cost :D :D
