I should print a disclaimer just in case :)

Actually, since it will contain a battery, can you be accused of high velocity littering :D

If you can get a 32mm diameter barrel it's perfect. It will basically be a scaled up version of the nail darts, a finned dart with calibre sized fins and a pusher plate.

Whatever is easiest for you, 33mm would give a bit more space to fit the circuitry :) above 35mm is uncomfortable to machine on a small lathe.
