breech loading is available (and in my book, recommended) to any sort of cannon, so if you're wondering whether to do it or not, i say DO IT!!! :D

breach loading is commonly used in cannons. If I were to guess maybe 10% of the cannons here? For an example look at the one i designed. There's an animation along with an explanation of how it works.

a ball valve is another route that is pretty sweet and convenient to use. Simply drill a hole in the side of the ball valve big enough for the ammo. Here is a pic of the one I put on mine...

Of course yours in the diagram would work fine.... but yeah, I would definately reccomend some sort of breech loading...

just make sure your ammo fits through it... my barrel was 1/2 inch but the ball valve was 3/4. when you buy the ball valve take the ammo you want to use with you and make sure.
