Introduction: I_am_Canadian's Heavy Cannon V5 Ammo Mods

The title says it all. Like many other builders of I_am_Canadian's knex cannon v5, I got bored of firing the same round over and over again and getting the same result. 45 seconds of loading and one dead pillow (I fire my cannon at pillow people). But that was not entertaining after about 20 shots. So I spent about an hour every day building and perfecting new rounds that were more accurate, powerful, faster, and easier to load in the gun. (this ible is mostly done and i will Finnish in a bit)

Also check out my attachments for the cannon

Step 1: Nuclear Rocket Round

the first new type of round i made. in short, it is just a normal round with more segments,
i love this round, when fired, you can really feel the recoil of the round. in picture 6, you can see the new round is almost 9in long.
Yay explosives!

Step 2: E2L Round

the E2L round or easy 2 load round is exactly what it implies. i built it to decrease loading time and still pack a punch.

Step 3: Shotgun Round

put a few of these rounds in with a normal round and you will have some shrapnel on your hands

Step 4: SPR Round

SPR, Smallest Possible Round. not as accurate as my sniper round but much faster

Step 5: Sniper Round

built for accuracy and for speed, while slower than the SPR it is much more accurate.

Step 6: Brothers Round

just some random round my brother disigned

Step 7: Rifle Round

probably my most innovative round. when it exits the barrel, it opens up and starts spinning in midair. its pretty cool.

Step 8: Claymore

absolutely my favorite round to fire out of the cannon. Its like a frigging sword gun! Very easy to load, extremely powerful, and accuracy is great because of the length of the round. if you only make one of my rounds, please make this one.
comes in three sizes:
claymore
need names for the other 2

One comment. With the power of the cannon, the claymore ammo will 95% of the time break. It's a good concept, but needs re-enforcement. Other than that, THIS IS FREAKING AWESOME!!! (did I seem excited at all to you?)

glad you like them! I have since put my knex in storage and have stopped building...with knex. At my school I am team leader in building a full size electric car and my skills in Knex have helped me so much. I might even post recent pictures of it soon... maybe

author
lphillips094 made it! (author)lphillips0942011-11-05

tihs dosent go any where
but this ammo will go about as far as the normal ammo

Isn't really aerodynamic, so the range will be lower and so is the speed. You've too much fantasy about ammo
Not to offend or something, just saying...

author
lphillips094 made it! (author)lphillips0942011-09-29

when dealing with objects as small as this, the projectiles drag coefficient doesnt effect its flight in the slightest.

author
mahmel made it! (author)mahmel2011-09-29

It weights more, it'll need more power to get the same speed as a yellow rod for example

and your point is...

Why not put green rods in these spots?

author
lphillips094 made it! (author)lphillips0942010-12-05

green rods hold the wings tight against the body and make them fly straight. so by not putting the green rods in those spots. your shot gun spread will be much larger and be able to hit more targets.

author
mahmel made it! (author)mahmel2010-12-06

Hmm.. You mean if you put a lot of this ammo in the barrel?

author
lphillips094 made it! (author)lphillips0942010-12-08

yes
right after you put in a normal round, put in two or three of these

author

Pretty good. Not all mods are useful, but still pretty good.

Btw, why is the first round called "Nuclear Rocket"? It's not a rocket, and it's not nuclear either.

author
lphillips094 made it! (author)lphillips0942010-09-22

it looks more like a rocket than the original and nuclear just sounded right at the time. plus do you have a better name for it beside the "obbliterator" ot the "demolisher" or the "bone crusher"

I'm building the ammo in between. What is the average power of it? I have the V5 built right now.

author
lphillips094 made it! (author)lphillips0942010-09-01

extreme power. you can actually feel total recoil. its awesome

author
~Aeronous~ made it! (author)~Aeronous~2010-09-02

Naw, it slings it out, so there is no recoil, but its bigger ammo=more power. I made one slightly smaller than the nuke, but bigger than the average. I'm scared to shoot it incase it smashes through the wall. Is the range improved at all?

author
lphillips094 made it! (author)lphillips0942010-09-02

range is decreased. i suggest you shoot a pillow held up against a wall

author
~Aeronous~ made it! (author)~Aeronous~2010-09-03

It still dinted the wall! Man thats powerful.

author
lphillips094 made it! (author)lphillips0942010-09-03
