Can KCLO4 be used instead of KCLO3?

Not usually. Certainly not exactly. The percentage of oxygen is different and chlorates produce enough chlorine to be a chlorine donor as well as an oxidiser, but perchlorates don't, so they need a chlorine donor like parlon or pvc (etc)then the ratios change a bit and the formulation has changed a bit. Lancaster does list a perchlorate red also, similar but slightly different -try it if you have the ingredients.

Hey guys one more question i'd ask on here since i can't open new topics yet... many great star comps use KCLO4 but BP(burst charge), primes, other stars, etc. often contain sulfur. So my question is: isn't it risky to use KCLO4 based stars in shells/mines? I always thought that (per)chlorates and sulfur/sulfides are a big no-no
