Well be ready to get knocked on your ass. Shooting something that heavy is going to some serious kick to it!! make a large pnuematic piston valved gun for it. that would go through 2 inch plywood!! No i dont know if they make 2in ply.

That's about 800 grams, if my quick mental math holds out.
That has some healthy kick, so make sure the cannon has at least 1.5' to recoil backwards. Maybe even 3', depending on cannon dimensions.
