NEW Spudfiles Challenge!!!!!!!

Unread postAuthor: Insomniac » Sun Oct 14, 2007 2:53 am

Seeing as a few other people have posted challenges (coin challenge, pop can challenge ect) I decided to post one of my own. I had always been interested in how well other peoples launchers would go with this.

Ok here it is: How many milk containers filled with water can your launcher shoot through? I'm talking about this type of milk container:

The wider ones that are roughly the same thickness would also work.

I can't remember how many mine could shoot through, but I'll try and get around to trying it when I find some decent ammo.

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

Ive gone through 3 3liter ones from about 5 meters at I think 120psi with a size 4 fishing sinker. It kept going and landed in our dam(30meters away) but I think it could do at least 4, maybe even 5.

Is there going to be a set distance and psi? If so I'm keen to give it a go :)

ok so I can get all nasty :twisted: point blank style? :lol:
I'll probably try to make a dart of sorts, I think that will perform better than a marble.

Rightyo I'll give this a whirl :)

Nah, I think I'll just use a marble.

We should have different categories, including a BB Buckshot category.
Categories:

-Single Projectile (solid).
-Darts etc.
-BB's and Buckshots.

It's only a suggestion, but I like it. It would make it more interesting to see results. Or just have a friendly contest and compare results at the end.

Use whatever ammo you want, whatever gun you want, whatever range you want. This is more a way to cause carnage and show off your guns and ammo than a really serious competition.
