I'm somewhat New to making my own darts and need help making a good solid cone, does anyone have any advice? I mainly hunt small game no larger than racoons with cold steel broadband darts but would like to make my own, I have everything down except the cone. Any advice is appreciated.

Duct tape is readily available and pretty much waterproof but it is also very flexible and a bit on the gummy side. I prefer to use heavy paper and glue. Glad to hear that you are making darts. In my opinion, Cold Steel does not make any darts lethal enough to use against a raccoon.  I made a video a while back showing my method for forming cones out of self adhesive paper (like a peel and stick label) on a tapered form. I'll try to find it.

That would be great if you could, and recently I saw a video of Tim Wells from relentless pursuit take a full grown warthog with a blowgun and cold steel razorhead darts. He was at very close range, and I'm not saying I would try this. But I have taken a racoon with a cold steel razor head and he died in about 10 seconds with a double lung shot at 7 yards. Thank you guys so much for the info:)

Found the video, the reason for the diamond shape of the paper is better finger clearance. The first piece goes sticky side out.

 

Hope the link works.
