New toy I made to play with. Took a limb off the dead tree at about 100 yards. Hope you find it entertaining.

Tung in cheek;
What?  you fired a Cannon in a Naval Carriage without rigging the restraining tackle?  Good thing you did no step back to the rear of it.
Chuckling to myself,
Good Video.

I made the whole thing. 1 3/4" I.D. X 3 1/2" 1026 DOM for the tube, 4" 4140 for the breech threaded to the tube, over all length 35.5" and 67lbs. , welded on trunions. The naval truck is maple held to gather with thru bolts. The charge is 500 grains of cannon GOEX the ball weighing 1.06 lbs. from a mold I made. I haven't chrono it yet. I found the retaining tackle reduces accuracy so I let her fly!

Fired over the chronograph today and the ball leaves the bore at 595 fps. About the right speed for CAS!  Roll Eyes
