My god, imagine a 150,000psi gun with a burst disc made from 1" titanium sheeting, I'm sure that you could fire marbles at near the speed of light. lol :D

Gunpowder can burn at a lot more than 50kpsi. Tank cannons sometimes generate 85kpsi, so I'd be more inclined to believe Mark's calculations. And you certainly don't need 150kpsi fittings for unregged nitrogen. It doesn't usually run anywhere over 2.6kpsi.

the only thing i can see these being useful for is a super high mix hybrid where you could use a shutoff valve to separate the chamber from the more delicate fuel and air injection parts although ignition could be a problem...

At my lemonade stand I used to give the first glass away free and charge five dollars for the second glass. The refill contained the antidote
