me testing some homemade gunpowder.
the type that I made is about 5 times stronger than ordinary powder. it also burns far brighter.

test subject A is ordinary gunpowder.
test subject B is homemade, but unprocessed and has not been ground or corned.
test subject C is fully processed and has been enhanced. the end product has a finer consistency than that of talc. it flows like a liquid even though it is a solid.

this is a very dangerous experiment to do. even more so if, like me, you are indoors when you do it. however, because it is so light, it is extremely sensitive to wind and should be done indoors. I will not describe how to make this at the moment. please do not ask.

when I do, I will make a video showing how to do it. even so, this takes about two weeks to make properly.

on a similar note, i've seen videos where people make it with crushed up match heads.

though it is a primary ingredient, there is much more to the process than just crushing matches. when I post the second video, I'll show you just how inadequate simple match-gunpowder is compared to my own recipe.

to those who have posted videos of simple match gunpowder, I am not trying to belittle you in any way. please do not get offended. this is just a reminder that mine is not that simple. kthnx.
