    I know I kept all those spent primers / anvils for a reason.
    Opinions are like anal apertures. They all stink but mine.

    Eight minutes to make three primers...I'd better get a move on.

    I usually do them in batches of 25 to 30. Tedious but rewarding.

    this piqued my interest and looking at the baggies and ratios it looks like nitrate (caking and ratio), sulfur(yellow color), charcoal or aluminum(dark color) and a 4th ingredient like a chlorate or perchlorate(other white, although seeing another image it looks like a tan color)

    i'm very curious what it is supposed to make and how they came up with it.
    There is no way to make it out alive...

    The fourth bag is crushed glass.

    I'm sure it is. Do they really work? I see skylighter sells the ingredients.
    I used to get stuff from them years ago, thunder valley I use now.

    So far so good. I have not had any misfires since I figured out the acetone and shellac mixture to soak the compound
