Is it feasable to build a gun similar to the bb guns used for the R/C 
warships, with the ball being fired upward into a barrel that curves 
forward?  Even if you can only get a 30 degree bend before you start 
breaking balls in it, you'll still have some extra room for your loader 
and everything else that has to sit above the breach.
