Double D, Yes, definitely those two would fit that category. In fact those shoots worked out so well that everyone is wondering when CBCCIII-Oklahoma will be hosted. I hear that Spring-Time in Oklahoma is nice when the brown grass turns green in April or May.

I couldn't be CBCCIII in OK, it would have to be OKCCI.

I am going to have to endear myself a bit with the Blackpowder shooters at the OKC Gun Club and figure out how things work there. But the thought has crossed my mind,

Fredstable, Tom, I think you should tell us where your powder charge is to be located along your train of apparatus and shot. Otherwise we will assume wrongly and will imagine all sorts of unusual, "After-The-Shot", images. Thank you..

I am only in the creative process at this point. Not sure this design would survive a shoot and would become basically grape shot.

Any chance the Magnus Effect could be somehow incorporated into a Cannon or Mortar?



I know that is the principle for what they call Hop Up in Airsoft Guns that shoot a smooth round ball from a smooth bore. Remember that from when my kids were younger and their Airsoft Rifle had a knob you could use to impart spin on the plastic balls.



I would not know how or if this principle could be incorporated somehow in a Cannon/Mortar or not. I am not that smart nor a Scientists,LOL

I have thought about using the Magnus Effect in golf ball guns to put a backspin on the ball with the intent of increasing the range (and maybe the accuracy.) My thought was to put a screw at the top of the bore just behind the muzzle that would slightly engage the departing golf ball causing it to take on some amount of backspin. I figured this would not be hazardous if shooting golf balls due to the softness of golf balls. I would not use this technique with a hard shot. It might be possible to use a strong magnet for a non-contact method but this would require ferrous shot.
