i find that on a SPUDgun that spuds work well...

if you have a lathe make wood rounds, mold them out of wax or bags of dirt, but make sure that if you launch a bag of dirt that you have a peice of foam or somethign behind it so that it doesnt go in the chamber.

"physics, gravity, and law enforcement are the only things that prevent me from operating at my full potential" - not sure, but i like the quote

you know you are not an engineer if you have to remind yourself "left loosy righty tighty"

First, What size barrel do you have?
Now how big is your chamber? Combustion or Pneumatic?
And what valve are you using if its a pneumatic
What fuel are you using if its a Combustion?

Don't shoot paintballs. I initially thought it would be awesome... it was awesome until I started shooting at harder targets. Paintballs ripped through plastic bottles well... but besides that, I was pretty disappointed. Especially when I shot at a football. Nothing happened. I tried...

1 paintball at 55 PSI
1 paintball at 95 PSI
5 paintballs at 95 PSI
5 paintballs at 105 PSI

My copper sniper rifle predicted over 700 FPS at 100 PSI, so I thought the paintballs would just rip through the football... wrong.

The destructive capabilities of a paintball are just too low to have real fun... I am going to get a 1/2" marble barrel, and see how that turns out...

well, personally ive always wanted to try make a dart round,ike just get a dart get a pece of paper put the paper over the barrel measure where to cut put the circular paper down the barrel and then the dart.The paper is so the air can have something to push against.THe only problem is whan you push down the paper it may move over and disfigure but give it a try!!

If you want too.

EDIT- WAIT A SECOND CHAOS YOU ARE A GENIUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOW I KNOW WHER I CAN GET BB'S OH THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!! :toothy10: :toothy10: :toothy10: :toothy10: :toothy10: :toothy10: :toothy10: :toothy10: :toothy10: :toothy10: :toothy10: :toothy10: :toothy10:
