Pill bottles are great ammo and pistons, fill 'em with concrete or Bondo.

There is no such thing as 2" ID SCH40 pipe.
2" nominal SCH40 has a ID of 1.845"

see this: http://flexpvc.com/PVCPipeSize.shtml

There are not all that many light plastic containers for sabots in 2 in ID.
Just pointing this out. Sorry a new guy has to point this out to you.

That site says nothing about ID
I think Benstern knows what he is talking about.

It says OD and wall thickness, that's enough. I'd say both are correct, because pipes are different thicknesses according to brand, schedule, etc.
