Cool bullet

Unread postAuthor: iamthewalrus » Sun Jun 12, 2005 9:06 pm

i dont know y i did this but i thought it would look cool. i found out on spudtech that a tones spice bottle fits a 1.5"sch40 pipe and so does a golfball with the shell removed, so id ecided to put the ball into the bottle and make a cool shell, and then i decided to make it like a shotgun shell and make it so u load it into a union and then fire and pull out the empty casing. tell me what u think, (future ones will have more presicion, i made this in about 4 seconds with a pocket knife.)

"Why would you want to"
Because with the shell on, they don't fit in sch 40 pvc... all this is addressed (currently) in the wiki.

Calculations indicate that a 1.5" bore would be roughly a 1.2 gauge shotgun.
