IIRC, small catapults were used in WWI to fling hand grenades from trenches (at longer ranges they could be hurled by hand).

Although long out of print, The World Tamer's Handbook (for Traveller: New Era) had complete rules for designing black powder weapons (small arms and cannons) and bows, as well as a dozen sample weapons.
