Nice! What size were the stars, and what and how much did you use for breakcharge?

 

What type of prime and how much was used on them?

Thanks! Did you press the clay bulkheads, or did you use a different way to prepare them?

yes I used a 1T arbor press. for this one I used slightly moistened plaster but I also did some with cat litter with good results although I prefer plaster.

Very Nice,

Curious as to Zmuros Tool?  Is there a link to check this tooling out?

 

Thanks in advance.

@Blackmach:
Was 30mm your mortar calibre or the bombettes internal size?
The tubes offered for this tool are 25mm ID. Did you use a bigger version?

 

I considered this tool too...
Not for cakes but rather inserts for rocket headers.

In fact it is rather on the large side for my taste, I would prefer something like 19mm ID.
But high quality thin walled tubes are hard to get...

30mm refers to mortar size, the outer shell is about 28mm inside 25mm
