Hey for pneumatins I found that ice works well. If you get a small piece of pipe the same cal as the barrel then put some water in it (covering the end so the water does not come out of course) then freeze. Push it out and ram it down your barrel. It flies really well and explodes on impact! Also makes a really really loud bang! :D

you can just cast some lead slugs, they should have bullet molds for just about any caliber, and one should be close to your barrel's size.

Yea, lead is expensive though. And also if I sent off for a bullet mold my mum would be a bit suspicious! Thanks though. Oh yeah if you get those glow in the dark sticks, the big ones. Make em glow then hollow out a potato. Fill it up and wrap it with cling film, to prevent it getting in to your barrel it is very messy stuff. Then fire it a a wall or target! Do it at night it is amzing!

Try not to touch the stuff, its toxic :shock: . You can also get film canisters or glass jars, anything seethrough that would explode. And fill those up then shoot it against a wall :twisted: . That is better I found as the glowing stuff doesnt have any chance of getting in your gun, It is also a much bigger better explosion! :lol:

It's going to be an exponential drop-off - in truth, it will never stop glowing (It'll just drop below a level where one could see it). Also, it depends apon the temprature. Personaly, though I have no experience with shooting glowsticks, and little experience with them - though I would imagain that it wouldn't be more than a few hours.

However, they dyes in the glowsticks are typicaly blacklight-responsive (partly by design, partly by coincidince)... might be best to just wash it off with a hose when you are done.

yeah just use the hose a also found another good ammo get a hunk of clay and old bullet and press the bullet into the clay to make moldes then let the clay drie of a bit the n get a small nail that looks like this [-------
and put the big end at the bottem of the mold then pour hot wax down and wait till it dries the pull the naill out and the wax will come with it then take the wax of the nail and you have your wax bullet. :P :D

I bought a 8.8mm nail for my 10mm cut off the head and put it in my drill with the pointed end out.I then filed it into shape with the drill spinning.Got a perfect bullet shape that way.I then took out the now pointed piece of metal and put it back in reverse.Sawed off the backside wile spinning.Came out exactly straight.Then I filed the back end just a bit thinner so it would fit into a 10mm aluminium pipe i had.Sawed that off to lenght and glued the hairs I cut off a wallpaper brush into the aluminium pipe.
Finished product was stable in flight and went through sheet metal. Hope you understand this.Lotta work but Jeezzz that thing looked cool

the list is endless for phematics because liquids and other things a combustion couldn't normaly hold won't damage it. if it will fit and fly it's a projectile :D :D :D

if you take a red wire nut a plain round one no wings or any thing it will fit perfectly in a 1/2 " pipe you need to wieght the front to keep it straight i drill a 1/8" hole from the back this will end up removing the metal threads that grip the wire(if you dont remove this it is very hard to get the screw in )and also center the hole in the front then take a #10 sheetmetal screw 1/2" long and screw it in the front
