David McCullough: Very cool. FYI, you can easily make your own black powder. It's just 75%
Potassium Nitrate (fertilizer), 15% Charcoal (make your own from soft wood
like Willow, Pine or Fir), and 10% Sulfur (optional, but it lowers the
ignition temp. Use more charcoal if not using Sulfur). Store bought
charcoal has additives in it that make the powder less powerful, but it
does work. Google how to do it, it's kinda fun. I think I'm going to make
my own cannon now. Thanks for the video!
firestarter1082: It dont come with any powder to shoot it. I was thinking about getting one
but im afraid I wont get to shoot it I live in nj and the stuff your
talking about they dont sell ?
Braden Peckham: I had the same lighter but the rubber fuel hose melted and so it no longer
mybirdbomb: about how much powder did you load ? I am assuming 1/2" in the barrel.
would 3/4" be way too much. Thx
MrGlock55: can you actually shoot a .58 cal lead ball
SittingMoose Shaman: ...use a black powder measuring/pour device...
Young Media Productions: @shaftwood By no means am I an expert, but I am glad to share what
information I do know! Thank you for your comment and enjoy!
shaftwood: This is probably the most descriptive and informative video on this subject
on all of YouTube. Thank you for posting!
fox123456789ish: where do u get fuses
SuperCal: I just bought one of these cannon from Kennesaw.What a blast.25 grains of
Pyrodex packed tight and you will have a blast.50 grains of powder and it
sounds like a 12 gauge.
Young Media Productions: @mannbradmusic Brad, Thanks for your interest in this cannon. I have heard
of some schools using black powder cannons to celebrate touchdowns for
their team. Unfortunately, my previous HS and current college do not do
this. This cannon is a bit small, but still produces quite a bang. I hope
to upload some better firings this summer so that the Youtube community can
get a feel for how this cannon sounds.
aaronzack14: how come your kennesaw is different from mine because i got mine from
cabelas and the was a kennesaw, but yours is a strait berall mine has like
some sort of design at the center
Young Media Productions: @Idiotology101 Your welcome! There are plenty of sites across the web that
sell black powder cannons.
Young Media Productions: @mybirdbomb It really depends on the size of the cannon, the type of
"powder" you are using, the powder's burn rate, etc. In all cases you
should follow the safety instructions. In no way am I an expert, so I
cannot advise you on how much powder is safe.
hopecamel: nice now put bbs in it and aim at a watermelon id make a cool vid
mybirdbomb: @mybirdbomb So I found the correct setup, 1" of fuse in cannon, fill powder
grains to expansion area or half full. It worked well. Typical Kennesaw
ittakesskillz: i got legit smokeless black powder i put about enough that could fit on my
finger tip in a small hole in a 2/4 and compacked it like a sob then put a
sparkler in it, it blew the 2/4 in half and sounded louder than a 44
aaronzack14: dang thats slow burning, id recommend 1/8 in. fuse at 9 seconds to the foot
mannbradmusic: You are quite welcome!
zippo1592647873: i think when the cannon gets airborn and flys backwards that meens u used
to much powder , lol jk , nice vid but u should invest in a funnel lid
(really helpfull , pyrodex makes them to fit right on the jug ) and id
advise a powder measure for easier and more acurate loads ,, my 2 cents
Tom Young: Nice job!
Tara Sherrick: How many ppl want to see the cannon upside down in the bottle of pyrodex.
Steve Buchholz: It says in the instructions to NOT USE smokeless powder...I shot mine
yesterday for the first time using pyrodex and it just went fffffssssss and
blew some smoke out....it did not go bang...packed it tight and still no
bang...I will keep trying....
Spaceshotx7: Is it as loud as those muskets, or any standard size cannon?
BillyBob Bobberton: Great video. Very informative. Thanks!
happydays: use a plastic funnel to load it
FLAMINGAIRSOFTSTUDIO: I made one. It was 50 cal. Put in 10 copper bbs. I don't know where it
launched itself to. Will find out tomorrow. CRAZY kick. about as much as a
real shotgun. It was designed to fit on a lego artillery piece mount i made
tho. CRAZY. You can see a couple eary vids of it shooting very low powder
loads on my channel, though you have to go to some of my first vids.
Young Media Productions: @vaugier7 I can't say exactly for your area, but I know I paid about $25
for the bottle of Pyrodex in this video at my local Walmart.
Gustavo Felipe: ouuuuuuuhhhhh my god muito massa esse mini canhão
Young Media Productions: @aaronzack14 hmmm Well, first of all, I bought my cannon atleast a year
back. And I don't know how long they had it sitting in inventory for.
Second, I did not buy mine from Cabelas. I bought mine from a online
website. I do know that Kennesaw makes different cannons, so maybe you just
got a different model.
jake sierka: good but i think it was actually maybe made to shoot something like a
Idiotology101: thank u, this really helped me wih the information i needed to know about
packing the cannon and what to use. now i need to buy one
mannbradmusic: Greetings to you! I am blind, but not totally and I thought I would drop a
line simply to let you know that this clip seems to remind me of the type
of cannon that many schools fire at their football games when their team
scores a touchdown. I have a cousin who played for a high school in the
area where I grew up and they did just that. I must add that when it went
off, it scared the living daylights out of me. Sincerely, Brad.
MichaelkSimmons: Which has less recoil, this one or the other black $30 mini cannon?
TheGarcia350: if you don't mind, where in georgia did you get that cannon, cuz i want one
as decoration ;)
fox123456789ish: ok thanks i found some at a fireworks store :)
Young Media Productions: @Airborne80 Blackpowder is supposed to burn a bit quicker than the pyrodex
I used in these firings. I can imagine that your report was "quicker" and
thus why it sounded more like a gunshot. To me, my cannon sounds a bit
"slower" than a gunshot, but I think that it give the percussion a good
cannon-like sound. Unfortunately, the reports in this video sound extremely
muffled to the poor microphones on my video camera.
ra777wow: Lots of fun !
imjustwonderful: @fox123456789ish most fireworks distributor has 2mm canon or "safety fuse".
you can also buy it online, depending on where you live
Young Media Productions: @mybirdbomb Yes, that sounds about right.
Congested Pike: It's not made for it but you probably could
Airborne80: Nice job on the video. I just bought the same cannon and have posted two
videos of it being fired. I use black powder and it seems to produce a
different bang than yours does. Mine sounds more like a gunshot. These are
great fun for just $27.00 plus fuse and powder. Thanks for the video.
Dongkeun Park: "The tighter you pack it, the better bang you are going to get"
vaugier7: how much does pyrodex usually cast
