Current Topic:
Calculating trajectory of ball rolling down slope and off launch ramp
I'll accept that if the ramp is sufficiently large and the balls are sufficiently small then it is possible to get a steel ball to go further than a steel core ball.

However, the radius of gyration of the steel core ball will be aproximately 3/4 of the radius of gyration of the homogeneous balls and will leave the ramp approx 7% faster (neglecting friction and drag).
