I would like to make my next spud gun using a 6X24 combustion chamber. Any thoughts?

inch? foot? if your saying 6 inch by 24 inch, and you can find a cheap section of 6 inch pressure rated PVC, then go for it, its gonna be pig, but if your barrels long enough it should be good

Hahahahaha.. Aww, man.. That's too good. At least a moderator didn't find this post first. Either that or their trying to ignore it / ready to explode.

Like Tator_Obliterator said, If you can find a section of pipe that you can afford and you have a fast valve, then go for it. Don't bother if you plan on using a 2" ball valve or something though. Good Luck.

Expensive too. 6" is extremely expensive say compared to 4" even. Also 6" will have greatly reduced max psi pressure. I say if you want a chamber with that much volume... make it out of 4" and just make it a little bit longer.
