Very interesting showing how inefficient they are, can see unlit powder thrown out of the muzzle.
It doesn't work for the first ad (which you can usually skip after five seconds), but I've been told that when there are ads in the middle of a video (they can be spotted by looking for yellow marks in the progress bar), you can skip them by dragging the scroll arrow all of the way to the end, then hitting replay.Could have done without the paid commercial though.
That's why I can't attest first hand to the above method for skipping ads.You Tube doesn't provide the videos out of the goodness of their heart and someone has to pay for it.
That's why I don't mind the few ad's they show (although I always click them off as soon as I can.)
knowing nothing about cannons, is that something that would normally occur? I would thinkn that you would not really wANT THAT TO HAPPENVery interesting video.
The only thing that looked very inefficient to me was all of the flaming powder gas that blew past the ball before the ball left the muzzle.
No doubt about it though, these things are serious weapons.
I'm a life-long cannoneer. What isn't said is that the full service load is about 3x the powder charge allowed by modern rules and that these old timers were running pressures too dang close to bursting the tubes (barrels) back in the day.Very interesting showing how inefficient they are, can see unlit powder thrown out of the muzzle.
