    Looks great :bow: ...now you got to make all of the accouterments (sponge, rammer, worm), make a ammo box...

    But a word of warning..once you fire it, you'll start thinking about the next one (and the one after that) :haha:

    It has been fired! 100gr of ffg is the sweet spot for a good boom! Here's some video, from my new camera. Gotta love the 60fps action shooting mode.
    enjoy :thumbsup:

    Nice piece!
    sure looks like a good shooter, only thing now is ya' ain't gonna be able to stop buildin' em for you is shorly addicted now :rotf: :rotf:
    I wish I had a digital vidio cam to show mine giong off. Right now my powder well only holds 35g of powder, but it will still lob a golf ball about 150yds, I think I'll bore it out to hold 50g or so and see what it'll do
