My most destructive "legal" ammo can be found in my combustion cannon thread.

It is made from 1" PVC pipe and duct tape.

The most destructive for me isn't ammo I made. It's a 1.375" steel ball bearing. Using 300psi carbon dioxide, it will travel through 5 sheets of fresh 3/4", 5 ply, plywood @ 6" apart, travel down range another 100', completely pass through a 16" hay bale backstop then continue another 400' further down range before plowing into the ground.

Nothing flashy but, it can really punch some serious holes.

Most destructive ammo: fresh picked walnut.

I depends what you're firing it out of and how fast it's going.

Even an airsoft BB can be pretty devastating if you throw it hard enough :)

Also, how do you define "destructive"?

The most destructive ammo was not meant like that, but for me it was a pump handle.

It destroyed my upper jaw, chipped a tooth and left a scar on my cheek..pretty efective.. :D

I'm guessing you need to check out a dictionary for the meaning of the word, "sabot." I don't think it means what you think it means.

I suspect the word you were looking for is "flechet."

Let's be pedantic, the actual word is flechette ;)

For my 1/2 inch gun, I attached two fishing sinkers together by a short section of chain. Great for ripping apart electronics at high pressures.

ouch, didn't you post a thread on that? someone did


i've tried that sinker one before, except with fishing line not chain, and the line snapped and the sinkers went flying in completely random directions lol

I pretty much embedded a 1 inch hardwood dowel 2 feet long into a log. Sorry no pictures. It was my deepest wood penetration ever.
