    This a project Ive had on the go for a bit. as you can see its not hand portable but it certainly beats the .338s in the energy department

    I'd rather take a hit from that than from a 338.

    Just a massively high powered spud gun.

    80mm smooth bore, Ive designed it to fire baked bean cans full of concrete at just over the speed of sound (380-400m/sec). yet to be tested yet but it should be a blast

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    It would probably die laughing if a can of baked beans landed near it !

    Does it use compressed air or some sort of flammable as a propellant?

    Not much actually, its safer than the air compressed 44 gallon drum ones I used to make

    Yeah projectiles, well thats being looked in to, APFSDS sounds the ticket I think. The biggest thing at the moment is that we took it to a high mix (in the spuddies world) so Im looking maybe I can get up to a 50% increase top of the orginal performance of the design specs

    LR Ill send ya a Pm
