What is the best way to detonate AMFO?


— Posted by chemical rxn on 10:34 pm on Mar. 26, 2002

I know using high explosives, and etc will work, but I was wondering if there was a way around using high explosives. I don’t have the proper resources to get/make the materials for high explosives. And would prefer not to use them. And yes i know i would be making a high explosive, however its much more stable.

No.  It needs a *powerful* detonation wave to initiate it, as well as a large enough charge of ANFO to absorb enough of the booster detonation to achieve full detonation.

In other words, you need a big blasting cap and a big booster, and preferably some heavy confinement to boot. I hear a few grams of AP and 2 or 3 grams of PETN usually does the trick.
