Mauler Valve Damage Pics

Unread postAuthor: tmacd995 » Sat May 03, 2008 9:07 pm

Hey Guys,
These are shots of a 3/4 inch sheet of plywood(not osb). I shot a 1 1/2 inch non frozen potato slug at it at about 90 psi and the plywood got rocked.
Made a huge dent in the front and the back of the sheet cracked.

So, now I want to figure out a projectile I can punch through it with, any ideas?
I have a 2 1/2 and a 1 1/2inch barrel if that helps with projectile ideas.

See damage pics below...

Submit your cannon to be featured on my new spudgun showcase!

How about showing us the cannon that made that damage? How about a big froozen spit ball, dunk a wad of tight fitting news paper in water and freeze it. There is a ammo thread with about a gazillion idea's in it.

A golfball will most probably make it.
