DIY projectile for cannons

Unread postAuthor: Spud Destruction » Thu Aug 09, 2012 9:38 pm

Hey guys we made a custom bullet and in some videos and some with taofladermaus it has been called slug-o-death. Not my choice but it stuck, here is our video of shooting a cb radio with it. Let me know what you think?

Jump to about 1:30 if you want to skip the bull crap. ;)

yeah the same thing happened on the previous video of the trip i did, i think two objects had the same trailing wire that followed that looked really good. Were thinking of upgrading that particular round with a tail, the mechanic which can do things, he's not just a character is going to at us some stabalizers, we decided to extend the length of the slug-o-death, so vs 2.0 should be here for season 3 along with a lot of other new things, can't wait to show you guys, and get your feed back.

have you seen this vid?



It is a projectile I made in school, very little work.
Maybe you can ask a local machinist to make it for you, you'll like the results :)
The projectile is about 44.5 mm. What is your barrel size?
