I am gonna make a pipe bomb launcher here is my plan:
Potato gun for cannon
One PVC pipe with bbs and other small metal 4 shrapnel
Smaller metal pipe filled with black powder in middle
but i can’t figure out a good way to detonate on impact
also weight is a factor
help would be appriceated

To impact, the end caps could both have blasting caps attached to an impact explosive, or the impact explosive attached somehow to a fuse.  And what would you use to launch the bomb?  what kinda fuel.  How about model rocket enignes, you could rig the smoke powder, so that they lgiht the pipe bomb.

LIke i said i’m gonna use a potato cannon 4 the launcher.
BP for explosive I am not using rocket fuel.
I want to do somthing like put a match head bomb inside to ignite it but i’m having trouble trying to figure out how to situate the ignition bomb INSIDE the PVC shell
