I was wondering how many volts and amps to set of a bullet and where i would find a small power supply capable of doing it.
I'm trying to make an electrically fired gun and i cant find any information or anything.

electronic gun

mythbusters showed a myth about using 22 long rifles for a fuse and after a short time they would go off this was in a pick up with a 12volt system dc current

Thanks I was thinking about buying a stun gun and seeing if that had enough power because i heard that black powder can be set of by static electricity but dont they use nitrocellulose in bullets now.

rail gun?

Isn't the rail gun system based on that?

It is an idea about saving space and energy by having no casing and no primer. Supposedly it is a great idea, but hasn't been put into a small enough platform to be used as a rifle yet.

I think it is working for big guns on a shit though.

I apologize if I am largely talking out my ass. This is mostly hearsay for me.

Its not correct

The modern bullet has a fireing order, the primer has what is called an anvel in it- when struck by the hammer it forces the anvel forward to detonate the primer directly in the middle of the casing to cause an even burn of powder. The idea of using volts and amps to set off a round is stuped because you dont witch is going to burn frist.

The only purpose of the primer is to set of the powder in the round to go off correct? If you can set it off another way, why do you need a primer?

Is right i think that the Rail Gun uses magnets with high output electrical power to send bullets. Just couldnt find anything on them. Dude dont set a bullet off with a stun gun that is just the kind of reason to get killed and then congress will layeth the smacketh down on us and put even more strict laws just do some homework on how to SAFLEY set a bullet of with electricity. Just be careful. Make sure you are in a safe enviroment when you conduct this test.
