I did a search couldn't find a Cato thread. Figured I'd start one. Let's see those Catos. Here is a 1-pound rocket I did not shoot on the 4th because I had my suspicions of a cracked grain. So I set it off during a rainstorm last night just in case.

Well that's very unusual looking lightening and strange sounding thunder. :o

My bulkhead/passfire former arrived from Woody's today. So no more bulkhead failures for me no drilling the bulkhead either. I do believe this will allow me to run hotter powder. I'm pretty sure I was getting these failures because I only use one increment of powder over the spindle to get the delay I want.

Wait..what was that term used for the Spacex rocket? Rapid unscheduled disassembly or something? :D

Who else was hoping, just a little bit, that when JeffB's rocket took off the other day that it ended in a RUD. Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly.

Just asking.

I thought this one was pretty neat the way it came down like a meteor and boomed.

I had one do a return trip with a salute heading landed in the pond and went all the way to the bottom and blew up. The water was cloudy for a week
