1/2" copper barrel ammo

Unread postAuthor: tigerblues28 » Sat Feb 22, 2014 8:59 pm

Hey guys!

I starting a new build, a simple copper coaxial pneumatic, and for the barrel I will be using 1/2" copper. I was wondering what's your favorite ammo, and maybe share a picture of the damage or just why you like it.

I though because it is so popular I'd start a topic on it.

Thanks folks!

I like to take a nylon spacer and then insert a bolt that doesn't quite make it to the rear. The head of the bolt keeps the center of mass towards the front and also provides for a very blunt impact force. These rounds are reusable and fairly cheap (50c each). If you can find a spacer that fits in your barrel, its something worth trying.

.50 ammo, what type doesn't really matter. Can be .50 slingshot BB, .50 airgun pellets or even firearm round.

Believe I used 1/2" type M for the barrel...

9/16" ball bearings are a VERY nice fit.
14mm glass marbles (slingshot ammo)

1/2 oz fishing sinkers encased in hot glue...made a mold. Somewhat effective.
