    Hey all,

    SWIM is looking to roll my own firecrackers for halloween. I intend on making M80s. Currently I have pyrodex rifle, FFFFG black powder and some 15 feet of cannon fuse.

    Any recommendations? I'll be looking up some youtube vids and posting results.

    Pyrodex burns too slow to make effective firecrackers, you'll have to put it in heavy confinement, something like a pipe or CO2 cartridge and watch out for shrapnel.

    Yes. Would mixing the powders potentially help with that?

    The black powder FFFFG made an amazing M80. Cut an X into a plastic water pipe. Stuck the fuze through. Put in the powder, taped it all up.

    Nice flash, bang, and a mushroom cloud. Perfect for halloween.
