I'm planning to buy HEX NUTS in bulk, which I plan to hunt with, which size do you think is best? Game will probably be -Rats,Squirrels,Starlings,Pigeons, Etc.... I will not hunt rabbits

You will be better off going to a place like simpleshot and just ordering steel ball ammo it's cheaper and more accurate than hex nuts

You can order 1000 steel balls of your preferred size on amazon for only 19$ I use 3/8" steel to hunt with I know most people prefer sizes 1/2 and up but I have found a well placed shot will still drop anything in there tracks

Man, I'm stuck between 7/16 marble or 1/2 marble, which one do you choose for hunting?

Neither . They are both too light in weight . If your dead set on marbles go with a  5/8 inch size . They are about the same weight as 7/16 inch steel balls .

I've seen a few squirrels and rabbits go down with 1/2 hexnut? I dunno, they weigh about 16grams and hit like a hammer, I don't know if there is an optimum size but something between 5-10 grams will do the trick while keeping your costs down...
