I just ended to roll a 2KG batch of Winokur 39J glitter stars for my 6" shells, but I have three important questions:
1. What kind of prime is needed? The classical slow BP meal plus 5% Silicium or Monocapa will work better?
2. It is essential to add 2% of Barium Carbonate to the prime or can I exclude it?
3. It is important to ballmill all the chems together (without metals and antimony trisulfide)?
In my modest opinion to ballmill the chems together could avoid the long lasting falling effect. I cannot see other benefits.
But since it is a burning composition, I do not like to ballmill all the chems together due to a improbable, but still possible, ignition.
Anyone can tell me if I can ballmill all the chems together soaked in the alcohol as I do successfully with hot BP and KP?
