Reloading Primers: How To Make Primer Powder H48 (from Hatcher's Notebook)

In General

You can safely combine 3 of the 4 main ingredients without great concern. When you add the 4th - go slowly and methodically. You never want to contain this material. As always - take all necessary safety precautions. I demonstrate the 'diaper method" to gently fold the ingredients together. Use regular computer printer paper.

Thanks for the video and the awesome information. Love your re-use of the primer tray to speed up the process. Question though, do you have a recommended site to get the compounds? I've found some firework websites that sell it, but was curious if you had a recommended sight you found that you like.

Please see Eph 20 in Marshall's document. It's the one I'm running with (at full speed). Send me your email and I'll forward everything you need to order. Mine is HelpMeNowMark@Gmail.com

Hello, I'm having trouble with the sensitivity of the compound. Witch ingredient should I add or add less of to increase the sensitivity? My mix will now go off unless I hit it with a hammer really hard but even then I only got it to go off once. Thanks.

All ingredients the consistency of flour before "diapering them" together? What is source of ingredients - particularly the sulfur.

Hi Redesert. No ... just the consistancy of flour is "good enough". You don't have to run it through any special mesh or anything. The shellac is the same way. It doesn't have to be precise either. Just 90/10 or 80/20 Isopropyl alcohol to 10 to 20 parts shellac. I isopropyl alcohol doesn't even have to be pure alcohol 80% or better is good. H48 is pretty forgiving. I am making vids on reloading recipe eph20 because it's non-corrosive. Did you see the vid on youtube. Going as fast as I can.

Thanks for the response! I went over the video and the manual online. After trying a couple separate batches still no joy; getting the flour consistency and diaper method. Saw your other comment too. I happen to get my components from Fireworks Cookbook. Maybe need to try a different vendor?

I've recently tried this given primers are totally out of stock everywhere. I have poor reliability trying them in SP cups. Is it possible to have ground materials too fine or am I not using enough shellac to bind them?
