Spudfiles challenge:How much damage can you do to a pop can?

Unread postAuthor: SpudBlaster15 » Sat Oct 13, 2007 11:07 pm

Lately, I have been shooting at soda cans quite frequently. As expected, my Hybrid launcher seems capable of causing the most damage to soda cans. Using blunt ammo, or shotgun style blasts of rocks or steel BBs seems to work most effectively. Ammo designed for more penetration seems to leave only a hole through the center of the can. Several attempts to destroy soda cans can be seen in this video.

The most impressive result was this.

The can ended up ripped into 2 pieces.

So, Spudfiles, I ask you, how much damage can you do to a soda can? If you accept the challenge, post pictures and videos.

I might load a bb buckshot shell. probably only airsoft bbs and shoot it at a soda can and get a picture.

I would do lead sinkers but im scared of the ricochet. i got caned by airsofts at 40 psi in the face because of the ricochet, imagine lead sinkers at 80psi.

Well, it seems like the amount of visible damage you can do to a pop can is limited...I mean, you can only cut it up into so many pieces... :D


Also, that's a pretty cool picture :P

How big is the sinker? If it's heavy enough and your gun is powerful enough it will just go straight through.

the sinkers are 8mm i think, dont knowhow much weight

but even if they do go straight through, there going to ricochet off the wardrobe behind it. i dont want to fire inside because its dangerous, dont want to fire outside because ill lose all my sinkers!

F*ck the sinkers man, they're dirt cheap :P

I did a 50 .177 metal BB buckshot today at a piece of wood I had been shooting PB's at all day from 15m away, most did quite a bit of damage to the board then rebounded back at me and into my car and garage.

No scratches on the car but I did feel a few hit my crotch area though I didn't feel skin contact, only clothes so that was all good. :P

hahaha ouch. that would have been painful lol. THAT is why you dont shoot hard metal objects at things they wont definately penetrate, unless you have the right protection :wink: :wink:

sinkers are dirt cheap? its like $4 for 20 or 30. (you CAN get them for free but i wont go into that.)

Does the pop can have to be the target, or are we allowed to break out the big guns on this one?

Bah, you are never going to win with a can that is just flat, it has to be distorted, twisted, bent, and tangled enough to pass for modern art.
