Yes, there is less drag on a cone than a sphere, but at the velocities we play at, I don't think it's a good idea. There isn't enough energy to spin the projectile (rifling) and if there is, you're in the realm of air guns/pellet guns, which can kill people.

These are an example of finned bb's
A little off-topic, but was just browsing the Rap4 website and saw these

Now, those would be GREAT for those not calling their hits.. have a mag loaded up with those and handy - anyone you suspect of blatantly not calling hits.. now you've got your proof, where honor has been failed.

'Problem solved'? .. switch back to your regular ammo mag.
