don't expect the powder to explode with a bang if you burn it in the open, it needs to be very tightly compressed to cause an explosion.


Thankyou ALOT! Thats all I wanted to know: )

no...paper rolled up will most likely do nothing...

if the powder is really coarse and not really fine then all it will do is flash...and it is probably ~2f

Ive been experimenting with gunpowder lately and with firecracker-like structures only get a pop and one end plug missing. the only way to get a bang with smokeless powder like what you have (it burns slower) is to use a thick walled flat-pack explosive (a.k.a. squibs). Make them out of several layers of duct tape for a good bang.

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08

Close, I just turned 15. But yah, I to have a tendency to type one liners sorry about that. I will try to juice up my paragraphs for know on. What can I say I'm full of questions.

Also when your typing in the reply box it looks like you typed more than what actually shows up.

well, it doesn't have to be that compressed. Foil and gorilla glue will do it.

frankrede your rite wetting the primer will stop it from going off!!

However if you want to safley dismantle bullets you should invest in a break hammer. its a hammer you can load your bullets into and with a light tap on the table it compleatly pulls your bullet apart!! wadding gunpowder progectiole and then casing!! I've got one and its great for making jewlery! Yes some hill billys like the idear of having a .308 bullet hanging from there neak and i can get ten bucks each for for em in 3 dollars in expence to make them!! HE HE HE sucker born every minet!!!

i dont see how you cna set them off by trying to take them apart. bullets need a sizable hit to ignite the powder. i take apart .22 all the time with just a pair of plyers. the powders isnt to good to use if you want a good bang but i found it makes nice fuses if you pour it in a thin line down a peice of tape than fold the tape over.
