Transit234, you have to many cannons! You wouldn't be planning some kind of ku, would you? Use the MK3.0, more power! If you need a target, put MK2.0 out of it's missery. :shock:

My money says you wont hit the can, a marble is perfectly smooth and spherical being shot out of a smoothbore barrel, it's going to curve unless you have spin on it to control it.


we'll see wont we. heheh :twisted:

I'll let Colonel George Hanger do the honours:

A soldier's musket if not exceedingly ill-bored (as many are), will strike the figure of a man at 80 yards, perhaps even at 100; but a soldier must be very unfortunate indeed who shall be wounded by a common musket at 150 yards, providing his antagonist aims at him; and as for firing at a man at 200 yards with a common musket, you might just as well fire at the moon and have the same hope of hitting your object. I do maintain and will prove, whenever called on, that no man was ever killed at 200 yards by a common soldier's musket by the person who aimed at him.

I'm sure the can will get hit by a marble at 200yds.

All you need is a big sack of marbles and a lot of patience :D


Personally I think I might cook something up to enter. It'll have to be something spicy because I don't have a massive calibre cannon to punch through a fridge filled with red paint or something.

If only the weather wasn't so unhelpful... :x

How about 10 layers of 1/2" plywood with a tissue?


I am going to enter, if I can find my dam regulator.

Hah. Lets see 10 layers of 1/2" plywood with anything fired from a spudgun first.

No spacing out the plywood either :P

I don't reckon it would be completely impossible if you used a APDSFS super-narrow dart with fins designed to break off on impact (to avoid them delaying the round). It would still need to be from a cannon that had enough brute force, but...

Ah yes, that'll get the crowds gasping.

A pinhole through 5 inches of plywood :D

Don't all crowd now, we've only got one magnifying glass :wink:


Feel like entering the comp Rag?

I'm considering it.
I might try with either my attempt at punching a APDSFS round through 1/4" steel plate, or whatever happens when a full 12g CO<sub>2</sub> cartridge hits a similar plate at over 300 mph.

I imagine the 12g bulb will look rather more impressive though.

Ah, to hell with using a super-narrow dart. I could put a 1"+ diameter hole through 5" of plywood with the SCTBDC with no problem. In fact, I would go out and do just that if the SCTBDC's stand hadn't got owned this morning...
