Just today I heard that there are gunpowder powered nailers... essentially a regular cartridge with a nail rather than a slug. Apparently used for some of that really really hard wood. I'm not sure, I just heard it from someone.

Yeah I know there are combustion nail-guns but my question was, "what kind of nail-gun (size and type) can achieve such velocities?" Because in my opinion they could be used for very high power (read supersonic) spudguns.

I'm pretty sure this Is what you're looking for. The nail guns that reach those velocities are powered by gunpowder, which isn't really appropriate for this forum.

Oh right, thanks a lot, I remind seeing red strips of used cartridges when i was a kid and a friend of mine had his house built. Thanks for the useful information ;)

The "combustion" nail guns that I know of use .22 cartridges with no slugs at all, blanks. The nails come in a strip for this type of nailer. I also see the gas cylinders in my local hardware stores, but have no experience with them.

There are in fact two types of combustion nailers, one that is very similar to a combustion spudgun, a gas cylinders squirts gas into the chamber, a spark plug ignites the mixture pushing the piston that drives the nail into the material to be fixed.
The other one uses .22 blanks and the projectile itself is the nail.

im not sure where i got some of those powder powered guns bullets but me and a couple of mate put them in a fire and yep they blow up good louder than fire crackers

i just look them up and they have a bb in them to start a hole in steel or concrete, porbly wasn't a good idea to put em in a fire

according to wikipedia
In brass casing:

Color coding Velocity (FPS - feet per second)

- Grey 315 - Brown 385 - Green 490 - Yellow 575 - Red 675 - Purple 755

In nickel (silver) casings:

- Grey 845 - Brown 935 - Green 1025 - Yellow 1115 - Red 1205 - Purple 1295
