I made a rocket without an engine from some tv antana aluminum or however you spell it. I put coke can finns on it with duct tape and it has a co2 12gram blackpowder bomb on the end. It is detonated buy a 22lr shell with the lead removed. you must shape the neck so you end up with 4- 3/32″ high finger on the neck face. You can launch it out of a patato cannon or throw it as a dart. But the only down side is that it must hit somthing hard like wood or someones skull to dtonate. Be careful if you drop it on the floor it will go off if you have done it right. If you have Questions just ask. But people if you cant figgure out some of the basics of rocket makin and how to make the fins pop out do not even try.

Take a pringles can fill it up with gaseloine,
put a tennis ball inside a light. If goes for a
PS be carful i spilled the gasilone on me and had third degree burns

but what kind of explosivs can I use safely for a bigger exposion. Would clorate mix work? What is the best way to make clorate mix and how hard is it to get.

try using nitromethane with it it should make a Big bang but you will need to use a LE to detonate it mix that with vasline or other palsticiser and you should have some fun backyard “C-4” meaning only that it is malible and could shape it into or fit it into things
or chlorate with Benzene or Kerosene/KClO3 but I can not swaer it either of them

the easiest shit is to take a model rocket and put an engine in it and fill the nose cone(after u put a hole in it about 1/8”) with some type of powder (gun powder) and super glue it on. Don’t add wadding, or parachute. the flame from the rocket that usually shoots out the parachute will detonate the shit in the cone. or use some thing that also will explode on impact, thus, creating something that when shot at a car or something will be sure to explode. or if u want to go specifically for distance explosions, do the same method but add some wadding by the end of the cone, fill the cone with some impact explosives, and put holes in the side of the rocket so that the ejection charge doesnt blow out the cone.

also for the cone u could take a .22cal cartridge and take out the bullet with pliers, empty powder and cut the cone so that the rim of the shell is on the edge of the cut tip of the cone. this will set off gun powder and usually will go off even if it hits the ground because of the high speed.

but it has to hit hard targets like gravel road or wood and not soft things like snow or people or mud. The dual ignition thing is a great idea but the dam rocket motors are so damed expencif. oh well I guess that is the price a person pays for being a pyro or what ever we are, maby it is explosive enthusiust or however you spell it. anyway now I need a portable air powerd spud gun to shoot this thing at ground squirles, a 22lr or shotgun is just not fun anymore. It is fun to blow up the dead ones also!!!! The heads fly over 100 feet lol.

dude i made a rocket out of a estes rocket and engine. theni put a 16gauge shotgun shett in the end and put a nail on so when it hit somthing it would detonate. so i launched it a a target that was pretty large but it went up and came down on the neighbors lawn and lit it on fire. it took like twenty firetrucks down there and ten cops. and the best part is i didn’t get in trouble.

Sweet!! Thats cool man.
That will not happen to me because my neighbor is 2miles away, well maby if I made a big rocket/bomb. nah I would likely spin out of control and hit the other neighbors at the 4 mile mark.
