I think you might have trouble getting a good arc at long distances. If I ever have a microwave to spare you can bet I'm going to try it anyway, though.

Well yes, but I mean for cannons, so unless you have a dog in the combustion chamber of your cannon, this isn't pertinent to the discussion. If you do have a dog in the chamber of your cannon, I think you have bigger problems to work out...
