8752Re: [SCA Newcomers] Siege Weapon Ammunition

Here's a fellow using pianos...
and a real link as an apology for being a wise guy...
I suspect for the trebuchet/catapult the real answer is - whatever was handy and about the right weight. It makes no sense to transport rocks...but variable weight makes for bad aim. I would bet the SCA Archers have good ideas on ballista bolts.
The sheer force would splinter anything underweight or of inferior material...

ok, so my boyfriend is trying to find some info
(dimensions, suggested materials, etc) for siege
weaponry ammunitions. Specifically ballista bolts and
also crossbow bolts, but also for trebuchets, etc.
We're in the Midrealm (I know it's a silly time to ask
since most of the midrealmers are at pennsic). Any
info would be greatly appreciated, so I can get him to
quit building the tabletop artillery that is over
coming my living room and send him to the back yard to
work on the real thing....lol.
Thanks a ton,
