Looks cool man, does the shot come out in flight or upon impact? also would like to see your gun ( air or combustion ). btw i'm designing a double barrel pneumatic shotgun, this type of ammo would work perfect i think. thx for the pics.

I can't see a double weight cannon being particularly good personally, single shots and reloading twice on a lighter cannon is much better.

Incidentally, chaos, have you tried solid lead slugs?

You just need a bit of barrel, some tinfoil to line it with and some lead.

Use a soldering iron to melt some lead in a tinfoil pastry case (without holes in the base) and pour it in with a pair of pliers :D

A blowtorch would be better but it might crisp the tinfoil so a more solid thing would be needed.

I think I'll go and find some BB's now :)

Very cool. Not only does it get the job done, but it gets it done in a nice looking package :D . Certainly worth me trying it.

shotgun yay!

they had worked a treat in my 3/4" pneumatic - I make my shells similar to yours but using tissue wadding hammered into the base to seal it from behind.
