Its a smoothbore, so there is some instability in the flight path of the ball. Some developed a wicked topspin and buried themselves in the mud just a couple dozen yards from the cannon, others were found well out of the expected flight path. The next step is to build a drag stabilized round and see how accurate we can make it.

After that, I'm thinking rocket boost.....

A friend of mine has a small smooth bore canon that fires concrete rounds cast from frozen concentrate juice cans. Very cool shit, it has put a round through both sides of a car at Knob Creek at a couple hundred yards.
