Gunpowder/Black Powder.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less travelled by,
and that has made all the difference.

Hey Keith,
Have you ever tried making your own black powder? from what i understand its very easy to make ;) , I've messed around as a younger lad making sugar rockets...ill add a link to one of the 20mm by 4inch model rockets i made...once you get the mixture correct and the lighting procedure right you can launch rockets at a fair speed and distance...handy to know! the second link is of a larger sugar rocket sent in NZ.
Cheers Cammo.

Hey Keith,
Have you ever tried making your own black powder? I have and it worked well...not sure how it would keep, think you would have to seal it fairly well, I've also messed around and made smoke grenades with great success and also rocket candy...ill add a link to one of the 20mm by 4inch model rockets i made...once you get the mixture correct and the lighting procedure right you can launch rockets at a fair speed and distance...handy to know! the second link is of a larger sugar rocket sent in NZ.
Cheers Cammo.

Thanks for the links cammo. Yes I have made my own BP in the past, & yes it did work very well.
