How many times do I have to tell people... if you don't have any clue as to what you are talking about, don't speak!
Pressure rated ABS exists, and DWV solid core ABS will hold at least 100psi for a very long period of time. I used DWV solid core ABS to construct my advanced combustion cannon, because it is actually a better
material for this application, as its failure characteristics are much more preferable than those of PVC, and ABS is much more impact resistant, and does not become brittle in cold temperatures.
ABS can also be used to construct oxy/fuel cannons (remotely ignited of course) because ABS can handle the immense shock load created by the rapid combustion.
Combustion cannon: DWV ABS > Pressure rated PVC
Pneumatic cannon: DWV ABS < Pressure rated PVC
