How To Make An Exploding Air Rifle Pellet With Matches




What do you think about this video?

Bradley Weetman: He mixture blows up on you if you mix the matches in a candle holder because of the friction. Apart from that they work great!

Joe King: This looks interesting, I'll have to try it. Always looking for something different to do, just found your channel. Greetings from Colorado

pop per: Seems like alcohol would be better than water. Unless that causes a chemical reaction and causes it to explode.

The Airgun Channel: Great minds think alike!! We're starting a new air gun and pellet testing channel where we'll be doing .177 ballistics gel testing, pellet grouping, and pellet shooting contests with our viewers, hope to see you there!!

Rodney Armstrong: Instead of water you should use alcohol or roach spray because they are more flamable and u will get a larger bang than with water or u can use propane or gasoline u would probably destroy a wall with that lol im gonna try ur method with my vigilante pellet/bb revolver havent got it yet though just ordered it today 

Stomping Spuds: I've been making these for over 20 years. Here's another idea...try red plastic caps and put the "charge" in the back of lets say Daisy Quicksilver pellets (they're hollow) then several grains of powdered aluminum, a drop of crazy glue and let it dry. When the pellet hits the charge is in the back and compliments the kinetic energy with a bang and it also expands the round. Putting the charge in the front is albeit cool, actually takes away from the overall punch.. Try the method I explained you'll love it...oh and make sure to keep any charge clear of where the "pinch point" is (the area where the skirt starts) this will cause a premature firing when the pellet grips the barrel rifling. With the advent of suppressed air rifles these rounds will be the life of the party.

ZombieTex: Nice, kid. Good job.

mohamad hamad: Dude you are smart

thuy tran: I love moto

spizzardo: Percussion detonation. Same as a percussion cap.

James Ward: made some in a better way get an eggcup put about one teaspoonful of water in the eggcup get about 100 strike anywhere matches place them in the eggcup END DOWN. leave overnight while covered in the morning place one drop of the mixture in the tip of a hollowpoint pellet wait to dry shoot.

jamesv2811: @issaA1 Not really mate they are about as bad as you can get because if you flip them round so you can put the mixture in the back all the air will escape round the sides. You should get some hollow points, they work so much better I recommend the RWS Super-H-Point.

jamesv2811: Not if they are safety matches they need to be strike anywhere.

jolly614: There's no freakin way i would ever put anything to do with superglue in my air arms s400 barrel,however if you have a cheapo piece of crap then fair play it would be great fun,i think i will try this with my Ruger 1022 il drill some hollow points out for a payload.im not bad mouthing rugers,i have a battered one by the way :-)

zippolover13: @Prodecessor981 no im not 9

acatnamedsteve98: Instead of water use rubbing alcohol it will still make a paste but it's flamable

jamesv2811: Thanks mate. James

jamesv2811: I made an annotation with a link to it but it's on my channel called 'Exploding Pellet Test'

Etienne Belanger: I mean strike Anywhere matche

Dewi Au yeung: I think if you make more than you can use a mortar and pestle.

james willmore: I looked for part 2 on your youtube site but i could not find anything...anychance to see the conclusion?

spizzardo: 4. Corning. Keeping the ingredients measured out but separate, you "corn" them. That is, make each of the ingredients into a thick paste (water's ok, but urine works better, the ammonia in urine reacts better, this is how they did it in medieval times). Then mix the pastes together, this binds them permanently and also makes the powder many times more potent. Spread the paste out onto something suitable, paper leather, whatever, anything non porous. Dries into a "cake" crumble this... Gunpowder.

moneymikenunez: Would it work just as good with "safety" matches?

ebil6177: my dad used to do that

C0untryboy22: Oh, and where's the video of you shooting the pellets?

kazzarooony: one! i am not a fag you homo and second rifle shooters are athletes and people like me work very hard to create a good name for shooters and its people like you who go and destroy it by exploding things and acting like common thugs!

spizzardo: This, incidentally is how they first made explosive bullets during the American Civil War. The airgun pellet is the same principle as the Minie ball. Hollow in the rear of the bullet, fills with the expanding gasses from the detonation and expands the sides out a fraction to perfectly fit the rifling. That's why the hollow in the airgun pellet. Put a plug in there, like a bb and it does the same job, but adds weight and mass, slower but with more stopping power, and explosive too!!!!

jamesv2811: Ah in that case it should work fine but I would definitely use hollow points instead of flipping the pellet over because it might not exactly line up with the barrel from the magazine. ATB James

jamesv2811: Its on my channel just look for exploding pellet test James

arron5710: They are going to off course and not accurate at all mate. And the hollow is for the propultion but cool anyway!

AceKing713: Buy the H&N Crow Magnum .22 18.21 Grains. They have the best hollow point. Good for making these

kazzarooony: @ironwinggame freak off sado

Ernestas: if i put water drop in armstrong mix,but not in maches head.my pellet still works?

pHappyfeet: Wouldn't alcohol be better for dissolving the match heads?

jamesv2811: I do have a video on that but you can shoot at anything with these.

Joker4232: Great video man, I just subbd , just got a few questions: 1 - can I shoot them in a crosman 2100? 2- can I shoot them in a CO2 daisy pistol? and if so, will it damage my rifle? awesome channel, Thanks.

tony montana: Loved this video, also like your video about the best hunting pellet, it showed me that I need to stock up on Hollow Points.

fpssilentfox: Im soon going to post a way to make exploding 44mag rounds

spizzardo: 3. Mix them together in this state you get Serpentine powder, a fore runner of proper gunpowder. Burns bright and hot but slow and leaves loads of residue. Also early artillerymen found that when transported and shaken around in a barrel the ingredients tended to separate and would need remixing on site. Then someone made a breakthrough, corning. This is the good bit, next post.

jamesv2811: @kazzarooony How the freak do I give shooters a bad name?? I'm a responsible shooter and have been shooting for 6 years and have never had a problem, I have only ever been told how good it is to have young people joining the sport and that I was careful and appreciated what they are capable of!! This is just a bit of fun, cheer up a bit ass hole! I think you'll find it's people that go and shoot others with air guns that give shooters a bad name! (Ashley Cole)

yorickye: wait, so if i have a hollow pointed pellet do i put the paste in the back as you did or the hallow gap in the front? also, wouldn't the pellet explode right after you shoot it because the explosive powder ignites when your pellet gun blasts it from the back? or will it still explode when hitting your target?

jamesv2811: Check out the test video on my channel and you'll see that I shot them mostly at steel but if you watch my hunting pellet test and go to the end you'll see that they go off when they hit softer things like clay. Also make sure they are dry before you use them.

issaA1: @jamesv2811 thanks for your help

matt foreshew: Hey buddie I saw this earlier and just finished leaving them to dry now I just shot one and it didn't explode what can I do Oran I doing it wrong, what did you shoot it at like wood or metal or what? Please can you he

Etienne Belanger: Where did you get your matche? I can't find some in canada!

Joker4232: Its a dual ammo Daisy Powerline 617X, I can shoot bbs and pellets, thanks for the answer man!!!

hankasai: have you tryed them for ... removing ... rats from your property?

jamesv2811: hahaha do it lol ;) I dont have a 'real gun' so I wouldn't know sorry mate. I guess it would be ok but then again the propellants hot gasses could set it off in the barrel so I guess you would just have to try it out! Good luck dont die James

Mithrilbong: James, Next time you buy pellets, get the hollow points. You can then take a small drill bit and spin it inside of the hollow point. You can get it pretty deep, and its quick because you're only cutting lead. You can put 2-3x more match powder in them this way. If you want to get really crazy, put some flash powder or pistol powder (not sure how available this is in the UK/wherever you are) and a bit of match powder on the top as a primer. Quite a bang my friend.

spizzardo: Call me stupid but I couldn't find anywhere to leave a post on your site so I'Il put the info here in a few easy steps. 1. Ingredients, where to get, how to prepare. Saltpetre / Potassium Nitrate. Nitrate of potash available in any gardening shop. Comes in small round granules like rice. Pestle and mortar out and grind them to powder. Sulphur, Flowers of Sulphur available from any chemist (vets still use it as a laxative for dogs, so there's your reason to buy it, your dogs sick, the vet said.)
