Apparently this was actual practice in Classic 
times: herewith a quote from a reference


   The section on slogans inscribed on lead 
   bullets (e. g., "take that," "[this one's]
   for you," "ouch," "get pregnant with this")
   is particularly intriguing (45-46). 

I looked around the web, but couldn't refind the sling
page with photos of such sling-bullets.

Further proof that Mr Wolfe has a strong background in
Classic studies!
