full size football

Unread postAuthor: sysTom » Wed Sep 16, 2015 5:21 pm

Hello,

Has anyone ever constructed a cannon for a full size football? If so what materials did you use and where did you get them?

The largest standard PVC I can get at, say, Home Depot, is outer diameter 4" - which is insufficient for even a Peewee football.

Thanks, Tom

To shoot a standard football halfway decently you'll need a rifled barrel.

There is a combustion cannon firing a soccer ball on YouTube, found it quite hilarious the size of the thing, just hope it didn't hit anyone!
