Introduction: Reusable Potato Cannon Ammo

Picture of Reusable Potato Cannon Ammo

Potatos are too expensive to just shoot out of a cannon once, just to splatter all over the place. I made this missile so that I won't have to keep on paying for potatos.

I am trying to find easyto make ammo and i am thinking about making some wood plugs and wrapping duct tape around sticky side up once and sticky side down twice the filling the thing with tissue paper making a soft round. I have launched confetti out of it a few times and if it was flour with a flare type thing it would look like a coffee creamer cannon
