What combinations of ammo go the furthest and with how heavy a firing pin? Answered

What combination of Ross go furthest e.g. Oodammo, Oodammo with a blue rod instead of white, Oodammo with a yellow rod etc. and which pure knex ammo goes the furthest.
 I would also like to know how heavy a firing pin I should use for different sizes of ammo e.g. Should a red rod have a heavier pin to fire it further? Or should all ammos have the 'standard pin' (black rod with tan clip and orange connecter all taped up)?

According to Ooda, plain oodammo is the best because he did extensive testing on all the different combinations, hence why we use oodammo. As for plain ammo, it really depends on the strength of the gun in question. I won't bore you with physics details, but basically heavier pins don't really help unless you have equally as heavy or heavier ammo. So use as light and long of a firing as possible (i.e. a clear/black rod with reinforced with the least amount of pieces possible, I can use just a rubber band usually). And then yellow rods are usually a safe bet for plain ammo, but if you're using a rather strong weapon, you could use red rods possibly a little better.

There aren't a lot of Knex people that patrol the Answers section. I would try the Knex section of the community forum or a knex specific website, which you can find via google.
