Please feel free to shoot this down. I was reading a issue of backwoodsman this morning and got to thinking about survival tactics.
How far would the flash of a shell loaded with only powder be seen at night?
My thought would be to prime some empty shells, (would be good use for shells that have slight cracks and can't be reloaded) and carry a vial of powder. At night, pour some powder in the shell, carefully load it to not spill it and fire it off. I'm thinking rescue people searching at night would be able to see it for a long distance.
What do you think?
It ain't broke it just lacks duct tape.
The nice thing about opinions is everybody has one.
