How did you go about cutting your breech hole?

Unread postAuthor: jmeyer1022 » Thu Feb 12, 2009 10:52 pm

I'm breech loading golf balls and I was wondering how you guys cut your holes. I'm sure most people will say they used a core bit drill or along those lines, I was wondering if anyone used something different.

Your other GB cannon?

A bbmg??
:D

You can use whatever you got.

Just make sure the hole has no square angles, this may weaken the pipe.
Keep the hole as round as possible.No point for a tear to start from...

You can tell how awesome a cannon is by the pressure used.

CNC milling machine, laser cutting, plasma gun vaporising, antimatter annihilating, just anything that is in your reach and can cut the material can be used!
