Great Ammo for 3/4 SCH 40

Unread postAuthor: sddds13 » Thu Jun 12, 2008 12:42 am

Take a wood dowel that is 3/4 in diameter and cut a 3 inch long piece. Then take a small drill bit like a 1/8 and drill a hole in the exact center about one inch deep. (this will be used to put a screw in) Go to your local hardware store (I recommend ACE) and buy a 5/8 beveled washer. ( they are used in sink repair.) The actual OD of the washer will me 13/16, the perfect seal for 3/4 pipe. Attach the washers to the dowels with screws and then fire. For more fun drill a hole in the front and glue a long 3 inch nail to it and go tree hunting. I will have pictures of all of this tomorrow with damage pictures also. Going over to brplatz to shoot some stuff with our new cannon and I will report back later. Have fun and be safe.

Turns out that the slugs didnt weight enough to keep them flying straight so the nail didnt work. So we drilled a 1/2 hole about 2 inches deep and filled it with lead. lol now these things will punch through counter tops.
