Do you have a report on how this worked?
My first post please be patient. This Idea has been popping up every now and then as regards inexpensive exploding targets.Ive worked with oxyacetylene torchs as have many of you and Im sure quite a few couldnt resist filling a balloon or other plastic bag with a roughly OB mix of acetylene/oxygen firing on it with a .22 tracer(otherwise exploding it,hot length wire etc).,EARache! I would think even a .22LR impacting a steel target immediately behind the balloon/bag would create enough heat to detonate the oxyacetylene.The lead projectile does melt after impacting a steel plate 1/8-3/16,MP of PB sufficient?Ignite oxyacetylene
.22LR tracers unfortunately are expensive but not nearly as expensive as tannerite targets and oxyacetylene detonates with an earsplitting crack rather than what I believe is a deflagration similar to flash powder from the costly tannerite and similar materials.its been 20yrs since it was playtime with a torch but having a fair grounding in HE's and detonations its clear what oxyacetylene produced!The cost of .22 tracers could easily be mitigated by a motivated home fabricator/firearms
Thanks for listening
