Shooting pressurized 16.9 oz pop bottles with first my Beeman P1 pistol (wouldn't make them explode) then my Gamo Whisper Pro rifle. the video doesn't capture how loud they are when they explode. You have to do this with a very fast pellet. A slow pellet will let the air hiss out. I built this 5-shot "mega-boom" for about $10 worth of tire valves. The Mega-Boom is a single shot toy. I pressurized them to 80-100 lbs. I'm sending for some metal caps because it breads the plastic caps which require a lot of work to replace each time.
What good tie rod ends look like, after one shop told me I needed new ones to the tune of $250
