Hello APC,
This formula works very well for me and it leaves really nice medium white tail.

Composition
Barium nitrate-4 parts
Flake aluminium very fine-1 parts
Flitter aluminium (40 mesh)-1parts

Preparation-mix fine powder of barium nitrate and fine flake aluminium 2/3 times with sieve then mix 40 mesh flitter aluminium.
bind with thin wheat paste and don't forget to use 2 percent boric acid due to nitrate and aluminium.
Star type-10 by 10 mm cut star.
Star prime-prime with BP+8% silicon powder
prime this star on only one side (top of cut star).
Any improvement/sugessions are welcome
Thanks.

Oh sorry LTUPyro I am talking about Tomek's composition.

I tried similar comp.
60% Ba(No3)2
20% Mg (I used MgAl instead of Mg)
20% PVC
It's pretty bright and nice comp. This compostion also works if you change Ba(No3)2 with Sr(No3)2 for red.

Thank you LTU for sharing this composition......
I don't have MgAl but I have Mg,so i am looking for suitable binder for this composition.
Nitrocellulose in acetone will be a good choice.

It should, I used +5% Red Gum and binded with acetone, stars were fully dry in like 30 minutes. Also this comp lights pretty hard so you need good prime, I used thin layer
75% Kclo4
13% Charcoal
12% Red Gum
and then little thicker layer of Meal D
