Easter egg impact ammo

The plan is to have a round the functions similar to the chalk rounds in the first of this video.

I haven't test fired, and I'm planning to put flour in them. Just testing different glues now. These particular eggs fit in 1.5" class 200 pipe. The kind that doesn't fit golf balls.

I had thought of using these in a 2" system to shoot at tanks in our games, but I would think they are too dangerous to use that way. Still trying to find something to use......

Anywho, Can't wait to see some vids of the "cloud" it makes. 8)

Because the eggs explode on impact, they should be less dangerous because the energy is absorbed by the egg cracking

You still don't want to be hit by one at significant velocity.

Remember, if you shoot water fast enough you can cut through lots of things: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_jet_cutter

I thought about making clay shots, but just not firing them. They are thin and barely strong enough to survive being shot. Tests tests.

On a side note. I'm talking about shooting stuff at more more than 200fps

Has anyone here ever tested balloons filled with material? I heard they shoot fairly straight with a streamer attached.
