Beach Shoot #21 - 30 mm Blue Mine

Date: 2004-02-01


Another simple 30 mm mine.

Kraft bag tied off with clove hitches. Lift of 10 g of -20+40 mesh pulverone. Ball of wadding instead of chipboard disks as an experiment in expedient construction. 10 g of 8 mm pumped KP organic blue stars, meal primed. Quickmatch leader with 25 mm of exposed match into the stars, about 100 mm of exposed match at the other end for delay.


Worked well.

Shot the stars up to a reasonable height, but they did begin to come back down and were mostly burnt out before they hit the ground.

Much better than the last 30 mm blue mine at least.
