Gave a loud report, good deep tone, not a lot of crack to it. Unfortunately there was no red to it whatsoever. Very bright flash though. I'm open to suggestions if anyone can figure out what is not working here, or if they have a red flash mix they know works.

lithium-nitrate-Composition wasnŽt good at all, it exploded strongly but
with a yellow-white flash. IŽll have to try a go with strontium nitrate,
but that one IŽll have to produce first. In the meantime IŽll go
with the KClO3 and lithium salts. Again, well done, your red flash, I liked

Used this formula:
Mg 75micron 1
Made 2 grams of it and made 2 1gram crackers of it.
I used transparant lab cable for the crackertube (so the light can get out better).
They where pretty loud for 1 gram crackers, probably the best crackers I ever made.
But now to the point. I lighted them at night. and I ran 10 meters away before they when't off. I was more blinded by the flash so I saw more white light then green. But I saw some green.
My mother was 30 meters away and wasn't blinded by the flash, and she said I was green-blue.
So the distance does play a big role in colloured flash?
Very usefull info
And does it help what I did? Putting it into transparent lab cable? Or did it do bad because the colour comes out when the cracker breaks?

I want to make a multi salute shell with all different kinds of collour.
So I could use the feedback

Still just orange. Gonna go with the Stontium 1 Mag 1 Parlon .1 that mumbles and ir-russo suggested earlier. Eventually I'm gonna land on a winner. Thanks for all your help everyone!

Best red yet in the diaper, we'll see tomorrow at the HPA get together. I headed a 3lb. red whistle rocket with a 100 gram hit of this stuff. Hopefully it looks better from a distance and in quantity. I will have the video up Sunday night. Actually I'm really hoping the rocket leaves the tube, I'm a little skeptical on the thrust of this bastard red comp I through together. It's my Frankenrocket.

But let me ask you something, a 100 gram flash header? isn't that a lil bit to much?
