Yes it is strong enough but it is very expensive in diameters above 1in.

Malleble galvanised iron should be avaiable in your local hardware store and will be fine at mixes up to 7x

Just use standard SCH 40 welded steel pipe, they should have it at any hardware store, even small ones. It is quite cheap, and unless you're going well over 10x, you don't need to worry about it breaking. Copper is shiny and has many characteristics that make it better than steel for some applications, but it's also more expensive, and difficult to find in larger sizes.

I can get electronic BBQ igniters for $4.55, No joke. I outfitted 4 combustion/hybrid launchers for less than $20.

I really should pick up a dozen or so the next time I go to the city, as I imagine there are several members who would want to purchase them for $8 each or so.
