A couple projectiles for a 2"pneumatic. Brutal!

Unread postAuthor: The Haymaker » Sun Jan 08, 2006 8:58 am

Here's three. One is caulking tubes. The more leftovers in them the better! Especially good are the aluminum tubes for polyurethane sealant used by most all windshield installers. I'm getting 7-800 feet outta these babies. Haven't measured the max flights, as they are too far into the puckerbrush!

My newest favorite is a round macde from solid steel with 1.78" tubing used for a skirt for catchng air and another piece as a stabilizer on the tail. Weight is roughly four pounds. Longest haul so far at a high angle shot is .17 of a mile, whatever that is. If shot nearly straight up, it'll pile drive 6" into the frozen ground. There's a link to a pic and vid of the round below. Hmmmm..... I think I'll call it my antitank round!

Eggs, frozen of course.........

The engry of this stuff is what amazes me most. I did a near vertical shot with it today and when it hit the ground, at a straight up angle, the weight of the shaft and muffler pipe tail bent the shaft 1" from the end, down inside the air skirt. That's 5/8" SOLID round stock!

Mua HA HA ha!

Honestly, this thing with plywood doesn't lend itself well to video. One second it's a good sheet of 3/4" plywood, the next second there's a 2"+ hole in it. :-)

Howzabout a can of silly string instead?

Seriously though, if it's carnage you want, go to the video album and look for "Haymakers Taterhater". MUCH better than silly 'ol plywood. :-)

thats a nice damage shot, im going to be recording a video soon (if the weather permits) showing how a pair of crappy printers make great targets for 2" plastic slugs :)

since its not really tail stabilized its gonna tumble, i bet you if you hit a full sheet of 5/8" plywood with that crazy ass tank round at the right time it tumbled (ex sideways) it would blast a hole right through it with great splintering effects :)

Nicholai, it <i>is</i> fin stabalized. Just because it isn't using the traditional wing-like fins, but is instead using a ring-type stabilizer doesn't mean it's not stabilized.

Nah, the "tank round" doesn't tumble. It yaws a little upon exit then flies extremely straight..... I guess I could say "flew", as it is currently awol down in the woods. :-)

The caulking tubes made from aluminum don't tumble either. Especially whe 1.5" of mortar is dumped in the tips of them! I've added 7 feet to the barrel, giving more acceleration time, and got .25 of a mile from one of those puppies a few weekends ago. I wish I had a way to vid them to show the speed and trueness of the way those things fly. Truly impressive!

Here's a carnage shot using a 2" trailer ball wthl shank. Now that tumbles!
