Nice to see an early jump! Got me a bit worried though! I think I'll try first with 300psi pneumatic then with the hybrid.

Before we get to far should we define a "standard jellybean" or let eople use whatever they want?

When I think of jellybeans I see two options... the smaller jelly belly ones and the larger erm.."normal" ones.

About 2.25 grams, 19.5mm long and 12.2mm wide is what I'd call "normal"

You know, Larda recently started posting again. I'd like to see a jellybean launched at 170X.

Smaller jelly beans are the normal ones!

'Spose I could try this challenge with my hybrid if I can be bothered to go out and buy jelly beans... and find some plywood...and a place to shoot and some time to shoot.

Can we use a shotgun round loaded with 50 of them? I don't have any functional small bore launchers, only the hybrid and a standard combustion.

We could also implement a new rule: If you're firing more than one at a time, you have to use 1/2" (Or 3/4") plywood and achieve complete penetration with at least one of the projectiles. Anyone have input on this?

Apparently not:

You might risk the jelly-shot just punching one big hole through the wood anyway :D

Do we have to use the whole jelly bean? Could we just make a cutter to cut a wad out of the jelly bean in the shape we need (provided we show it on the video)? Look at it this way- we do the same for potatoes.

So we can only launch one jelly bean at a time for this contest? Cool, I'm on it, pneumatic-style.

can't you roll it down on a hard surface until it's the right "calibre"?
