Try asking in the ammo section next time.

Depending on the exact type of pipe, it varies, but SCH 40 2.5" pipe fits tennis balls quite well, or in general you could use massive spuds.

Novacastrian: How about use whatever the heck you can get your hands on?
frankrede: Well then I guess it won't matter when you decide to drink bleach because your out of kool-aid.

Potatoes work great as ammo or so I have heard that they fit most barrels

Actually, 2-1/2" SCH-40 is about 2.45" ID. So no, I hear no echo. :P

Lightbulbs actually fit good. Just get one to where it'll survive the launch, (A.K.A. - fill it with concrete. :) ).
