my plan is to build a launcher that runs off a 9oz. co2 tank. Ive figured I would run it on a remote straight to a metal valve(no pvc pressure chamber at all) and run that valve into a barrel made of schedule 40 pvc. my question is, is regular co2, running from a remote into a launcher, at a safe enough pressure that the velicity of the object im shooting won't punch through someone?
is 800 psi safe to shoot nerf footballs, paint grenades, paintball buck-shot, etc?
my tippmann operates at 800psi, thats why i ask. would the increased mass of these projectiles make them more hazardous to use?
what would be a safe operating pressure for these projectiles?
would putting something like a palmer regulator in the mix keep the pressure low so this launcher can be used in games?
do i just have to worry about the FPS of the projectile im shooting?
I really want to make a launcher that is fast firing so i can lay down effective fire on a massive scale. if it factors into the equasion at all, I was planning to have a 10-15" barrel.
also, ive looked at other launcher threads on here, and one says that it is suggested for low pressure launchers to have a 1:1 ratio for barrel to pressure chamber. does this mean a volume ratio of one to one so that the unpressurized volume of air in both chambers is the same?
