Shark repellant or marker dyes?

our aerosol rounds are tumbling and need to be made aerodynamic and/or rifling needs to be utilized.


Gyroscopically stabilising a projectile with a liquid centre and a high length to diameter ratio is not a good idea, some kind of empennage is the most viable solution.

Shark repellent. They are using the same 2oz cans that our OC source does but the water activated valve is a little tall to fit on top and still squeeze into 6 inches.

Good point regarding the liquid. We have just recently been presented a solution to the problems that a siphon tube can have on stability. The new rounds are some sort of new mixture that doesn't use one. Much cleaner and easier to work with.

We will need to take up a lot of payload to accommodate an empennage of any length. The smaller 3/4" x 2" cans that fit on our existing finned empennages do not have very much of a payload, but may still be effective in numbers. They are also much safer for the fact that they weigh much less.

The next plan is to utilize my pneumatic timers in the deployment of a small parachute for each can as it starts to disperse.


We will be using many different techniques to deliver payloads and there are a small number of different companies now working on rounds for the Eclipse. This year will be a good one for new ammunition.

This is what the single shot Eclipse looks like which can be converted to the revolver. We will also have a non convertible version that is even more compact.

Makes sense, as it is the bulk is one of the only apparent downsides of the unit.
