    I was watching an old war movie over the weekend and a thouht came to mind that I never saw or heard anyone address before. Would it be possible to set off a cannon round in a tank by shooting a rifle round down the barrel? If so has it ever been done that you know of?

    I don't know about older munitions like the ones in the movie you were watching but it's not as likely to work today. Most warheads are triggered with circuitry - The advantage is to have the explosion happen inside the target tank or building rather than when it strikes the surface. The triggers are not armed until after the warhead leaves.

    A hand grenade might have an effect on that warhead . Too close for comfort .
