2" Destruction ammo

Unread postAuthor: WOW!! » Tue Jun 17, 2008 3:57 pm

For a 2" barrel take 2 1-1/4" female threads PVC, and a section of 1-1/4" steel pipe and take the PVC threads and screw it on to the pipe, then sand off the ridges off of the PVC so that it fits inside your barrel.

Then fill with sand, concrete etc and it make excellent ammo for destroying things.

Why not like thise:
Take a piece of pipe, the same size of your barrel and then cast it full of concrete. Then remove the pipe, and youve got a concrete slug.

First, concrete can get caught in the barrel when you shoot it, scraping it which could weaken the barrel over time and lose air pressure because things don't have a perfect seal and it could lodge itself in there, I know from experience.

So your best bet is to make a sabot. Cast a section of concrete one size down from your barrel, like 1.5" cast it 1.25", then after it is dry remove it and center it a pipe the same ID as your barrel then fill it with some of the expanding foam let it dry and take it out, or water and freeze it.

You can also do the same thing as I said in the first post but use 1 1/4" end caps and a section of PVC, I usually so that and fill it with sand, works well.

the perfect ammo for max energy is and will allways be lead.

i just tell you (all my hybrid things was suposed to be a secret until it is done.) i shot a 600g solid lead slug at 3"-4" of rocks and it was spectacular. like 10 different pieces. do not ask about the pressure or mix.
