Default biodegradable ammo (not paintballs)?

anyone have a good idea for biodegradable and spherical ammo like frozen peas etc?
i hate leaving shot around esp when i cant get to the drop location
im guessing steel takes a long time to break down and i hate littering in the woods
thanks

Smile biodegradable ammo

all the biodegradable ammo I ever tried was too light or irregular to shoot straight.May be with real light bands it my work?Lead shot lasts forever and is harmful but steel rusts pretty fast.Have fun .

HAHA! i guess if your thinking edible ammo i would suggest jawbreakers, gobstoppers, fireballs....... might get a little sticky and stain fingers if its too warm out

Either buy yourself some clay or find a local clay bank, and either press or roll yourself some balls and then let dry in the sun. A bit light, but it will work.

reduces the sourcing of clay and mfr consistency
im assuming since they are micro safe that they dont have any metal in the clay
