I pumped a 12oz pepsi bottle to 90 psi and shot it .. made a nice boom sound.  I am wanting to try some of the crinkley watter bottles to see if they are louder.

NOW you're having fun!  You know the smaller the bottle the more pressure it will take, couple of weeks ago I pumped a 12 ounce coke bottle up to 120 psi.
Years ago before I started this Big Blast thing I was pumping 2-liter bottles to 140 psi but they wouldn't blow unless I scribed them with a utility knife before pumping them.
The bigger the bottle> the higher the pressure> the louder the blast.

my friend has a pellet gun that shoots in the 400-450 fps range and at 90 psi it would not puncture the pepsi bottle .. we did noty have water bottles to try as they are thinner walled.   just an fyi as the pellet ricocheted when shot by his gun

Here's a video of shooting bottles with airguns, shows problems they had and offers advice:
