In 2003 in New Castle Penn we launched a 36" shell that went up approx 1/2 mile and displayed out to 1/4 mile radius, the lift charge was 14 pounds of black powder and I believe the shell weighed in at just over 350 pounds.

Now I wish I had some pictures of that one, the shell was painted to look like the earth :)



wow i had no idea they were that big

Now that's just mind boggling. I'll bet that concussion felt pretty awesome too. I love the feeling and that deep resounding boom from the big shells XD
