Unread postAuthor: falcone » Sun Dec 10, 2006 10:19 am

has anyone ever seen that mythbusters where they are testing the myth that hay can go through a tree? well i wanted to make breech loading like theirs ( just a hole on the barrel and another pipe that fits snugly over the whole)

Just hold the pipe in a vice and use a holesaw. That's the easiest way.

Nope. Only the strongest piano string did.

My dad has this little boring tip for his drill press.

It looks like an elongated dome with spirlaing grives runing around it.

I had to drill a hole the same size as the bore of the tip, and then keep grinding the copper barrel against the tip to make a bigger hole.

Use a T-coupling. Thats much easier than cutting the pipe itself on the top...unless you dont want to cut it in half...

That is a pretty smart idea. A T-coupling with a sewer end cap.

Except that a T isn't the same diameter as regular pipe, so when ammo hits the lip of the pipe, it loses speed, accuracy, and if you have paintballs or something they break.

By the T you can shove it past the T in the barrel.
