Testing 1/4" stars


BlastFromThePast

Recommended Posts

I'm having some trouble finding information on how much BP to use for testing smaller stars. They are 1/4" and weigh approximately .5g. I'm using a paper mortar roughly 1/16" larger on all sides of the star. I just need to know a good starting point, and I am also surrounded by neighbors so I'm not looking to blow up my tube.

Try 1/2oz. and go from there.

yeah, you'd probably fill the tube to the very top with that much!

 

Try 1/4 gram.

Probably not, but it would have been very wasteful and you would have seen a lot of flame coming out of the top of the tube.

I know that you like cannons dynomike, but we aren't going to shoot stars into orbit :P I would suggest to but a paper disk over the star to help building some pressure.
