Updated 40MM High Capacity Smoke CS/OC Gas Projectile
This high capacity projectile can be used with the aluminum M212 casings from ReloadableShells.com or standard nylon M212 reloadabe casings.
This projectile is made from 6061 T6 aluminum. The base screws into the top portion, and is made to keep the plastic band in place on launch. The aluminum inside the band is knurled to keep the band from spinning in place. The base fits tightly into the top, and with hand tightness should not come loose during launch or flight. The rifling acts on the band, which is attached to the bottom of the projectile, so it will not loosen.
The white plastic band engages the rifling of the launcher barrel, imparting a nice spin stabilization to these rounds in flight. The nose of the round has a stainless steel bolt driven by hex wrench for added protection and weight, so no worries about hitting rocks. The projectile comes with 5 holes pre-drilled around the base of the top section for use with slow burning smoke mixes. The base section screws into the top, and has a pre-drilled fuse hole with rebated sections for glue to help hold the fuse and keep it from being blown into the projectile on launch. There are three 1/8″ pinholes in the base for removal with a 1/8″ pin wrench if the base becomes too tightly screwed to the top.
The white nylon type plastic band is replaceable, so after you wear one out, you can put a brand new one in place, and keep on firing. The base has rims lathed into it to allow the RTV to get a good seal, needed to allow pressure to build up and launch the projectile.
