My latest combustion

Unread postAuthor: Altron » Sat Aug 05, 2006 1:29 pm

This is my latest combustion. This thing shoots a potato around 350 mph and is a blast to shoot.

no not yet. I will probably take some today my buddy and I are going to a hill that overlooks a lake and gonna take some pics. Probably make a video too to show distance. Gotta love shooting them over a body of water and seeing the splash 1/4-1/2 mile away ;)

I think 1/4 to 1/2 a mile is a slight over exageration, more like 1/8 to 1/4.

Why would it be an exaggeration, 1/4 of a mile is pretty easy to achieve with the right counbustion knowledge, i think that that gun is completely capable of shooting 1/4 i dont know about 1/2 but its still quite a distance.

I would like to see a chronograph reading before I believe that your basic combustion can shoot at 513 feet per second, and 1/2 a mile is 2640 feet or 880 yards, with a combustion... I don't think so!

I like your cannon, but I think you're giving us a bit of a fish tale (If you know what I mean).

If you don't know what I mean let me make it clear "Liar, Liar, pants on fire!"

LMFAO carl, most people would struggle getting 250m+ with propane.
And your talking about 400m for 1/4 mile.
