Do you mount them in the copper or keep them in the shell? I'm confused as to why you showed the copper at the start of the video and also loaded a full cartridge in to the breech with the impression that the cartridge doesn't fit in to the barrel, only the projectile. The shell ejecting was awesome though :D

I've fired .303 projectile from a couple of my cannons as well. I used to use the cartridge as a sabot and fire both projectile and cartridge (inert of course) but I swapped to taping the projectile at the back until it reached the diameter of the barrel and then using more tape to give it a tail for stability. I'd only use the rounds for point-blank penetration testing though.

This isnt my video i wanted to just point out the copper with the solder in it can be launched through an airgun and it would look like a bullet and, or make a splatter on a wall!
