If you want to get more width out of the drawer, use wooden
runners and a groove in the side of the drawer.

You can use ball-bearing slides on the bottom but they aren’t
designed for this sort of load. Not worth the hassle, imo,
because there are other solutions.

You could try these: http://www.leevalley.com/US/hardware/page.aspx?p=40591&cat=3,43614,43616&ap=2

I’ve used them. They are fussy to install but work well enough
if the drawer isn’t loaded too heavily.
