Science: At What Weight Does An Object Not Bounce?

I was lying in my bed the other day when a rather strange question popped in my head. At what weight does an object not bounce? For instance, if I throw a football, it bounces. If I were to throw a shot put, would it bounce? Perhaps a minimal bounce. So lets say I threw a cannonball, surely that wouldnt bounce? Another question to consider is size and shape of the object. If anybody has any answers to these questions I would be glad to hear it. I searched google and couldnt seem to find an answer, its the perfect high school science experiment.
