Built this many years ago, at least 7 or 8 years ago with my brother. Got the tubing from a steel shop and had them weld in a plug. We of course did the drilling for the 6-1mm #11 nipple. And then used a frame off an old log splitter that blew up. Welded up some support bars and made a hammer with a spring to fire the cap off. We later added the shield to it. Its pretty fun to take out shooting. I havent made a lead slug mold for it yet so we basically just wad up foil, a wood plug and either shoot that or add some ball bearings. I once loaded it up with BB shot and set up a target 60 yards away, wow! Talk about the ultimate shot gun LOL.
The original load was 350 grains pyrodex RS. If you think shooting a muzzle loader is expensive, upgrade to a cannon :shocking:
Caliber is 30mm
pretty cool looking rig, maybe the log splitter blowing up was a bad thing??? :nerd: You like shooting/blowing things up it seems. Next we'll hear of C-4 experiments, Ha Ha. Just kidding again, pleas don't report on that. :shocking: Good thing you have lots of open space to shoot stuff in. You remind me of a TV program "sons of guns" or something like that. Looks like a godzilla snow blower in the back ground, you didn't put a V-8 in it did you?
LOL yeah thats an old snow blower, a big heavy duty one we repaired for the neighbor.
Is that thing legal in your state? or only if you get caught! lol
black powder cannons are fine. Just a big expensive muzzle loader.
Theres a gunsmith not to far away that builds beer can cannons lol. they fill beer cans with cement and shoot them off.
Ragheads shoot barrels that size off their shoulders...
Looks cool. I would enjoying rednecking around with that thing for awhile.
