Need ammo recomendations

Unread postAuthor: beastmode986 » Thu Aug 09, 2012 11:24 am

I just ordered another qev and i am going to build a 1/2'' shotgun I plan on using a 1/2 in piece of copper for the barrel. Can anyone recommend some good ammo? I want to order on ebay or from somewhere in the us.

Jsefcik is right though. Anything that fits is ammo as long as it's an inanimate object. :lol: I filled pieces of PVC pipe with sand and taped the ends shut and shot those. They "exploded" on impact sending sand everywhere. It's a pretty cool effect. Creativity is key here.

I'd recommend either find a consistent pre-made ammunition (Paintballs, ball-bearings, darts, etc...) or make a bunch of easily reproducible sabots and go with the common convention, anything that fits

I like to stuff a paper towel in the barrel, then I dump in some ashes from our fire pit or our grill, then finally seal it off with another paper towel. It replicates an old fashioned black-powder cannon quite nicely.

P.S. It will fill most of my backyard with "smoke" so eye protection is required.
