The previous explosive bat was cool, but it wasn't setting any records. I set out to design a bat that could beat Babe Ruth's home run record of 575 feet. The engineering was intense but the results are spectacular. Aside from attempts on the record, you can also look forward to some awesome high speed footage of the bat in action and a special guest.
This video could not have been made without the help of Destin from Smarter Every Day. Not only did he provide the high speed camera, he also shared all his footage from testing the bat. He made a more in depth video on what happens when this this bat goes boom. Check it out!

      That bat produces enough force to launch a Ford Flex 1.3ft in the air

      This is the power level of like a kanabo or sledgehammer actually probably more 6000pounds of force is certain enough to blast someone to the shadow realm

      I actually use the same blanks in my antique revolvers that are chambered in .32 rimfire and they seem to be pretty powerful!So the one that is my current EDC is a 6-shot double action Forehand& Wadsworth with a 2.5"barrel and when I load it with the same red #5 blanks and a 100 grain LRN bullet and they drive this bullet at an average of 340-350 meters per second or 1100-1150fps on average giving 375 joules or 275 fpe on average which is quite substantial for a 2.5"barrel revolver!However I generally prefer using #6 purple loads for better performance or #4 yellow loads if I want it to be subsonic:the #6 drives the same 100 grain LRN in the same gun at an average of 380-390 meters per second or 1250-1300 fps giving 470 joules or 350 fpe which is about the same as you get from your glock in 9mm or .45ACP!As for yellow loads those generally get around 1000-1050 fps and so they stay subsonic in my case!So if you want to improve your results in this video-buy at least #6!And if you are ready to make it really crazy powerful-try sourcing out the long nickel coated purple #12!I used to find 6 of them and fired the entire cylinder using them because the particular model that I have is very significantly overbuilt and it allows that but trust me:it's a bomb!I got the same 100 grain LRN bullet at a whopping 650 meters per second or 2130 fps on average using these crazy loads!It gets slightly over a thousand fpe so it is just a bomb!Try that stuff out!

    What if you lessened the recoil on bat so it doesn't break it every time by drilling holes a certain point on the piston so once it fires it acts as a muzzle break but points towards the direction its firing? Or springs?

    what snapped the bat, maybe because we took one of if not the hardest Aluminum alloys you can get, Probably a Perception Hardened aluminum, and then screwed the grain boundaries all up by welding it. lol. maybe need to look at pre and post welding metallurgy... if you need some help, let me know!

    I wonder if your design would react differently if instead of hitting the ball from a tee the ball was pitched instead?

    Off hand, it seems like your chamber volume may be high enough that a slower burning powder (e.g. pyrodex or another black powder substitute) may perform better. Also the smoke would be a pretty cool visual!
