First it depends on what PSI you've jazzed the shell with. The hotter it is the harder you have to hit it.

Second you'd want to add a sleeve as it's rim cartridge that would go cockeyed in the tube.

Third you'd need a breech or you'd have to dump the tube upside down to remove the spent half.

Now the whole math behind a hand held tube with no sights is you pop off a round and see where it lands. Then you correct your aim or your charge.

If you pick up the tube every shot and do the hokey pokey you won't be able to walk the rounds on the target.

With the more sophisticated systems you'll have the traverse and elevation locked down and click adjustable and you'll have your dope so first shot on target is doable

For airsoft launchers body english is where it's at.

Now if this is just an atmosphere piece and you don't want to send a projectile down range just fill it with glitter or flour and get a decent pop and puff out of it.
Airsoft, where nothing is hurt but feelings.
