I should have mentioned I made my super candy with kclo4 and yes pressed bu hand just enough pressure to fill the tube.I stored my candy in a vaccum packed container.I stored all my bp this way and any hydroscopic chems.

My candy rocket fuel was always semi hard so grating was quite easy.I also use 1lb tooling which was mine I made as I made all my tooling on a drill press.I fused it half way up (QM)  not all the way and easily launched 3 and 4 inch ball shell.One must remember I live outside the box. The real kicker was making hybrid candy/bp!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for all the input sitx. I think thats where Ill start but I always tend to lean towards the chemistry 65% kno3 but Ill push that aside for now and try your mix. The burn rate for me is perfect so Im not messing with carbon or iron oxide I like just a nice simple fuel (plus the more additives in lower percentages the more it fluctuates from batch to batch).
