40 Then (David) took his staff in his hand and chose five smooth stones from the brook and put them in his shepherd's pouch. His sling was in his hand, and he approached the Philistine.

48 When the Philistine arose and came and drew near to meet David, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet the Philistine. 49 And David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone and slung it and struck the Philistine on his forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the ground.


Basic Information

A sling stone is a stone pebble thrown from a sling. These are usually picked up from the beds of watercourses as water weathering tends to erode the stones into a suitably aerodynamic shape, but if required virtually any chunk of stone can be used at a cost in ballistic performance.

Basically free, this is the default ammunition for slingers. For more hitting power, upgrade to a sling bullet.
