Ammo

Unread postAuthor: n-strike » Mon Apr 28, 2008 10:52 pm

Hello, my fellow SpudFilians. I would like to know what would be the best ammo for 1" PVC. I have a foam arrow that fits perfectly, but I don't think that it would be heavy enough. And I also don't think that it would be destructive enough. I wanted to get 1 1/2" PVC for golf balls, but my Home Depot only sells them from 1"-3" in 1" increments. They also only sell them in 10 foot lengths. There's also another store, and they sell them by the foot, but it's too expensive. I might go to Canadian Tire tomorrow, and I need to get a tire valve, and I'm going to check if they have 1 1/2" PVC. So yea...I'm getting a little off topic now. So the point of this thread is: What ammo do any of you SpudFilians use for 1" PVC?

Okay. This is a little off topic, but this forum is nice. So may friendly people. In my old forum, NerfHaven, if you didn't type properly like this, they would ban you. Again, this is a little off topic, so yep.

You're going to need SDR 21 1.5" PVC for golfball barrels. Regular sched 40 1.5" is unfortunately just slightly too small. SDR 21 is a little tough to find so good luck with that. BCarms can hook you up with some if you can't find any locally.

Some C size batteries will fit a 1" barrel. Also, you can build your own ammo from 1" wooden dowel rods. You can sand a little pointed profile on the end of them and screw a screw into the front tip for a little weight out front. Center the screw as best you can.
