I purchase the lead balls at either of two fishing/boating stores.  They 
have them in
1,2,3 ounces and larger.  They have an embedded wire eye for the line to be 
attached to.
I spray paint them a bright red.  With my home built super slingshot using 
tubing assembled on  an 8' 2x4, they go up easily over 120' trees with 
enough room to
clear limbs on the way back down.
