Simple answer? NO.
Carbonates slow the burn rather than adding to it.
Come on! Name one other hobby in which you cheer as your money and hard work go up in smoke!

You can try. It probably won't be a perfect substitution, but will probably still work overall.
Just so you guys quit asking, here is the link to the old forum. http://www.xsorbit2....forum/index.cgi

The sky is my canvas, and I have 2,113 pounds of powdered paint in the workshop.

Pyrotex, skid68's idea is a god one.
Do you mind about sharing a kind of tutorial on how you build you cakes, especially the little shellsinserts...
For 30 mm, they have quiet big breaks!

Thanx in advance.
