    bad choice of location , you need a deep quarry or something , ... cannon balls are notorious for bouncing

    a demo they did here had one bounce off one rock and change direction about 30 degree's then hit another rock and divert again another 30 or so heck if it'd a hit a couple more it'd be heading back at ya ..

    and these where supposed experts ..

    Now try to imagine the damage these iron balls did when they hit what they were aimed at! Awesome firepower!

    I love that show also and the two intrepid hosts make this story very believable to me.

    Ditto Terry! "And, PLEASE don't try what you see here at home! We're what you call experts!" :eek:
