    Shane is a really cool guy. I reached out because I wanted to understand his bat and how his mind worked. I ended up valuing the friendship over anything else. Check out his video and consider subscribing to him here: nlcameras.info/wiki/iavUZo6eyZLe0qg/video

      I think there’s some things to help your record out coming from a baseball player. First off the vinyl balls are killing your power. As a baseball player, we call those dead balls. They’re great for BP in cages because they’re cheap and don’t scuff. If you were to use MLB baseballs they’d fly better because the core of the ball is more springy. Make sure the surface is real leather and the seams are not raised. A better swing can also help you out. The ball being pitched towards you also gives you extra distance, it’s harder to hit a home run off a tee than it is in real pitching. Back spin is another thing I noticed y’all struggled with. Win you roll over, obviously you get a ground ball. When you upper cut, you get top spin so the ball won’t carry. If you can get a more level swing and still get a good launch angle plus it will carry further because of backspin. I hope you see this and can milk every foot out of that record! I live in Huntsville so if you have some kind of public event I’ll be sure to come check it out!

    hey how do you guys keep the blank rounds to stay in the chambers after being fired off?? and not flying out with the bat side that has the firing pins on it itself, shouldn't the rounds fly out with the bat side that's facing the ball when striking!

    Can you attempt to see if you can hook this bat up to the spinning motor from your bat to make it hit the ball twice as fast? Maybe even use the baseball air cannon to pitch it to the bat and make it even faster?

No matter how smart you are or how much you know, there's someone who knows more about something than you do. Or, the person your talking to knows more about a particular topic than you do. How much better would we be if we recognized that there's something we can learn from pretty much anyone?

    Also if you made the pusher part that hits the ball flat rather than round It would work far better Yu are not hitting the ball squarely and all your force Is rolling away from propelling the ball.

    The pushing after the shock of the cartridge is going off is taking energy away from the flight of the ball. Eliminate that pushing spring unlike the ball achieve its velocity and see what that is before you took it away by the secondary push.

    Ge with some ammunition reloaders and explore the forces behind the deformation, cratering, and piercing of over-pressuring primers. Then go after the separation of cartridge case heads, the welding of cartridge cases to the chamber wall, and the "improving" of cases by blowing the shoulder forward. Then, there's what happens to the bullet. Study "The Houston Warehouse" for more exciting questions.

Not to mention you'll learn a lot along the way when you guys do future projects. ;) (not trying to be pushy or anything :P)
