I remember that. I had a cap gun that shot that ammunition. The cap could put those through paper at 15ft.
@ OP, the idea of making a more aerodynamic "bb" has been around for a long time. Tiberius tried to do it with their paintball markers and created the First Strike round that was extremely expensive, marginally effective and was almost uniformly banned from all field as it posed a safety risk.
