i shot a raquet ball in my 2 incher...i needed dish soap to squeeze it in and it took like 10 mins to get it in...when i shot it the back of the combustion chamber actually shot off....it hit me in the hand and cut it pretty good...so i dont think its a good idea to shoot raquet balls because its so darn tight....although it shot extremely far

The little magnetix sets that you can buy. The balls fit perfectly in 1/2' sch. 40 PVC. Also, if you use wadding you can fire a full kool-aid burst bottle out of 2 in. PVC. They live up to their name, they burst on impact.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! I love pennies :wink:

A pack of smarties fits perfectly into 1/2" CPVC for small pneumatics.
Also if you want to make some stefans (homemade nerf darts). Get 1/2" Foam Backing Rod from lowes then find a tutorial on the web on how to make them. They also fit perfectly into 1/2" CPVC.

its a common ammo dont think it was said but AA batts in 1/2" pvc, a good ammo to use for basically any thing under 2.5" size barrels is get pvc tahts 1/2" smaller cut it in about 3" slugs cover one end in ducttape, that end will be facing chamber, the other end can either be open and have airsoft bbs, reg bbs, rocks ect, or it can be closed with more duct tape and the slug filled with dirt, sand, water, rocks for weight, they could be used as shotgun type slugs or just slugs to do some DAMAGE, they could be bolt action loaded, breach loaded, or muzzle loaded, many many possibitities

Some good penitrating ammo is a potato with a metal bar or pipe thrown in after it. They don't go far but they work great for close up damage shots

pop corn shells are always nice.

They are the best in shot gun style shots.
