Sexy Ugly Ammo

Unread postAuthor: elitesniper » Tue Mar 25, 2008 12:14 am

Well this is my wax ammo with 24g bb's embedded in them waiting to be fired out of my 3/4 rifled barrel for my advanced combustion, they were casted out of wax, upon contact with the target the wax is supposed to break apart and the bb's are the only ones left that is supposed to pierce the target,much like a sabot, should work, anywhoo if it doesn't it will still pierce the target :)

That is quite an interesting idea! I think that you would be better off with a ballistic shape though, and adding bb's behind the cone. In this case, you could just cut from the base of your projectile and add it to the top as a ballistic shaped cone. Should work. I like the idea.

Why not? You know, so it looks like an estes nose cone? You can keep a large enough base for the rifling to hold on to.

Ohh, I thought you ment like a ball. Yea I think that should work even better due to the aerodynamic shape.

Yeah, just put a cone shape over a few layers of embedded bb's, should be pretty cool! :twisted:
