Check out my Heavy Cannons target shooting ammo mod!

Hey everybody! This is an instructable to show you guys how to make an ammo mod for the Knex Heavy Cannons so you can add more power on your cannon without crushing your ammo!

Maybe you have to make barrel reinforcements when you extend it (to get more power out of it) so your barrel won't break and slap into your face when you are sitting behind it. An Instructable of my heavily modified Heavy Cannon V3 is on my profile, so you can get an idea of how you can make a barrel reinforcement. This mod can be used with all types off ammo that are used in the Heavt Cannons.

Do you like it? Let's start building then!
