Distance a 12g CO2 cartridge can launch a...?

What would you say the maximum distance a 12g CO2 cartridge could launch a ~12oz cylinder? The cylinder can be adjusted be top/bottom heavy or have its weight increased all around. The design of the barrel would (VERY) roughly look like the image at the bottom.  The cartridge would be in a housing unit at the butt of the launcher.  It would be set it off in a to-be-determined way, shooting out the cylinder(2 2/5inch diameter, 8 inches long, ~12 oz) that would be resting in front of it.

Prototype Rifle (updated!)

This is the design for my new knex gun. I might not post it because it is just a replacement for the MH297(my old gun). I was going to post it but my computer crashed and I lost all my photos. I had already taken the gun apart because I was working on my shotgun (I might post). P.S. New avatar!
