wouldnt it be better if you were shooting something spherical such as a ball bearing? Since all the projectile are obviously hitting most of the targets sideways.

Thats because there's no rifling in the "barrel". So round would be better. Dimpled like a golf ball would be even better. :D

This one will be tricky to replicate with a 3D printer :)

Hey guys,a portal is a device for teleportation. A gauss gun is a gun. No parallels here.

#8 So what's about the music and cake at the end? It's not Portal?... btw "Portal" is a game.

I like how the red dot sight is ten centimetres under the targets he hits.

#3: No worries, 40 m/s is hardly enough to even puncture skin.

Most of them appear to hit their targets sideways...

#14 40 m/s equals about 95 mph , so I think skin penetration will not be a problem for this coil gun. Didn't you see the projectile puncture all the way thru the laptop screen? Are you tougher than that?

It misses rifling or some other method of spinning the bullet along it's axis. Stabilizing fins is one way but it's inefficient method as it creates lots of drag that only self propelled ammunition can withstand. On CQC combat, maybe. For longer ranges RoF is not such a big issue so you can spin each bullet with simple motor before launch. Can imagine the scene: you hear a faint spinning sound; you got a sniper somewhere close.. No muzzle flashes or loud bang, just bullets hitting the wall.

There is extra feature in coil guns, the acceleration is gradual and totally controllable so you can use wide variety of explosive material in them.

I would like to know how much the projectiles weigh. The way they measure the power of firearms is in foot/pounds. take the mass, and velocity plus a dash of math bingo bango.
