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!
Ed Mack: The best exploding pellets are made from cap gun caps, just use a hole
punch to punch them out and glue them in stacked in top of each other in
the back of the pellet. They will not ignite in the barrel, and they do
some very serious damage. I have blown some pretty big holes in trees etc
.22 works like a maniac( I still have my Crossman pump pistol), but .177
will do the trick. They will also store for a long time as I had some
stored for over 20 years and they still worked perfect. I hop I didn't give
away my age, but just put another 40 years on top of that. Some of us NEVER
grow up. Oh, never shoot at a solid steel target, they can come right back
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!!
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
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.
pop per: Seems like alcohol would be better than water.
Unless that causes a chemical reaction and causes it to explode.
ZombieTex: Nice, kid. Good job.
thuy tran: I love moto
mohamad hamad: Dude you are smart
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
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
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
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.)
