I would be more inclined to go with cartridges, a filling valve and burst disk retaining mechainsm is likely to be relatively sophisticated and delicate, not the sort of thing you'd want to be throwing at your target.

It would also have the same disadvantage as the equivalent powder-burning "rocketball" projectile, limited volume for air meaning limited performance.
