You seem to think that the bottle is what might do damage. It's the FLOUR that's doing the destruction. No matter how elaborately you slit the bottle, if the flour is together on impact, it's going to be dangerous.

So Boomer and I took up the request of shooting a watermelon with a flour-filled 20oz bottle. I even had it slitted. The bottle was very light after being filled with flour but check out what it did to these watermelon chunks.

I'd hate to be anywhere near in the line of fire of these. These bottles do not pop open upon impact; on the contrary - the target does. It's a very bad idea to shoot these at any living things.

turbospuder bb showers are expesive and don't well simulte grenades, they just spit a cluster of bbs like a blunderbuss

pb[alternate gender preference] i don't care about if your canon is so strong the point is this projectile can be launched safley but you just don't get it

sporty I think you made your projectle wrong if it dons't work the point is to find a way to make it work with a proper way to launch it

mark sorry about my langague it's just that pbman really annoys me

You still don't get it.

The FLOUR is making the impact, not the bottle. Also, the flour isn't attached to the back of the bottle. No matter how easy it is to crush the bottle, the flour is still going to fly forward. Even if you just shot a bag of flour, it would be doing the same thing.

As long as you try to use the energy of the cannon shot to disperse the flour, it's going to be dangerous.

Also, you should reread pbmann's posts. He's been telling you all along how LOW-POWERED his cannon, not powerful.

I fired a bag of flour at a tree today...it was pretty awesome:D

Regardless of target choice, flour makes for pretty cool ammunition.8)
