What kind of metal?


— Posted by Pyr0Maniac on 5:37 pm on April 6, 2002

For a pipe bomb what metal would you use? i have galvinized steal, copper, regular steel, aluminum, and a couple other kinds, what one would be the best, and is it better to have a hard or soft metal?

It depends on the strength of you mixture, if your using Sodium Chlorate for your pipe bombs, a strong metal will do.
And it can hit as hard as an anti-personell bomb, white hot shrapnel will fly out and mangle anything it touches.
Use yer aluminium for things like gunpowder or even flash bang grenades, since it will come apart more easily under the pressure.  So it depends on what kinda bomb yer wantin mate, Hard steal for powerful explosives, and aluminium/copper for more practical frag bombs and impact explosives.:cool:

say i have a 2 foot thick blockade composed of ply wood, tires,  and more plywood, would the pipe bomb with Sodium chlorate rip right threw it? oh yea say the bomb is 30 feet away from the blockade

Against a solid blockade no. Fragmetation grenades were made for one purpose only, flushing out people and killing them. Against structures and walls the shrapnel would probably richoechet or leave a chunk of asphalt in someones face. Plywood though it would tear through it but only at close range (Meaning less than 30ft away, which is quite a distance,) at 30ft it could probably still kill if it hit you, but even against plywood you would be looking at minimal damage, you could expect it to be falling apart tho after a few hits though.

so it wont blow a hole threw it?

Not unless it lands next to it, if it does that wall is gone.

no, i ignite my bombs with a rocket launcher remote and the y shaped fuse i put the fuse in the bomb then i walk over to my blockade, the wire is 30 feet long so the bomb is 30 feet away from my, from 30 feet away can a piece on metal blow a hole threw my blockade?

Ah I see.  No it wont destroy your wall, but it might rattle fuck out of it, just to be safe i would scavenge for a sheet of metal or tougher material for your blockade, or you could test it out on a car by making and lighting a fuse, but yeah you should be ok just keep yer head low hehehe:cool:

i was thinking of making a turret (those gun stations on a boat, the ones that are under the deck) for a blockade, like maybe digging a 3 or 4 foot hole then kinda making a wall of metal in a U shape to cover the front, left, and right of me and maybe making a angled piece of metal to cover maybe a foot or two above my head

hehe cool, well i can tell you that would take a fair amount of punishment and still stay standing:cool:

yea i hope so, me and my friends, yesturday got 10 gallons of gasoline and found this old car and poored all of the gasoline in it, on it, and around it, then got 6 co2 bombs (with blackpowder in it) and linked them all together with a 10 foot fuse, (one of each tire, one under the hood of the engine, and one in the car) we lit the fuse and ran like fuck, that fucking car went up in a mushroom fire, the D.E.M came but we were long gone, like 3 mins after the D.E.M cam we heard a shit load of cop cars and fire trucks and crap, but this has nothing to do with Sodium chlorate but wut the fuck its funny
