You'd have to dump a barrel of compressed air just to fire the projectile.
This is whatthis basic diagram of the device suggests. I remember a Junkyard Wars episode where they made a bowling ball cannon with a burst disk at the muzzle *cringe*
Here's how I would make it, much more efficient and the hollow tail also provides stability:
Every time I post there's a link to a muzzle burst disk design using hollowtail projectiles
But still, it looks like they fill the entire tube with compressed air then waste the barrel section of it.
