Now that at least a half dozen of us have can cannons we're going to need blanks to shoot them.

The cheapest options that AR15L and I found are:

Option #1
https://usarmorment.com/223-remington-c-1_226/lake-city-556-bm200-blanksb-1000-round-case-p-1969.html

1000 rounds for $299.95 + $28.40 shipping, .32835/rnd

Option #2
http://www.unammo.com/Default.aspx#Blanks

500 rounds for $175 shipped (+3% credit card fee), .35/rnd (.3605/rnd with the fee)

If there's enough interest we can go with the 1000 rounds and save a bit more. If it's only a few then 500 rounds might be the better option.

Chime in if you are interested and about how many rounds you would want.

Edit for the tally:

1. AR15L 200
2. RocketScott 200
3. Stokes 200
4. Mike_P 200
5. Jagerbomber35 200

I'd take 100 if I could pick up in Tacoma or south. I'd take 200 if I had to so the group buy made a minimum.

I haven't looked at their shipping yet for price comparison. These aren't the only blanks they have, several different loads available.
Might ask them about a discount for bulk (1000+) purchase since they don't list those quantities.

I will email them, but I just added 1000 rounds to the cart and shipping was $50.10

I'm open to any other possibilities you guys find. It's important that they be M200 or equivalent, I found one site selling blanks that specifically said "Not to be used in a can cannon". I'm betting that warning came from a bad experience. We don't want to have any bad experiences...

There are two types.
One for golf balls and one for the can launcher.
M200 is what we need.

Haven't you read your memo?
We are now a Socialist gun site.
YOU MUST SHARE YOUR OVER ABUNDANCE WITH THOSE LESS FORTUNATE THAN YOU.

I've got some, but could always use more. I'll take 200 and if for some reason we can't find a 5th in the near future, I'll round it out and you can put me down for 400.

Looks like we have enough. I'll get 1000 rounds ordered

We'll have extra if anyone else comes along and wants some.

Updated the tally to add Jagerbomber35 to the list.

I have a tracking number from FedEx. It estimates delivery this Saturday.

The package hasn't been picked up yet so that may change.
