    How about my ex-wife :D.

    A 45 won't set off a Tannerite target.

    howlin,

    trick with tannerite and slower rounds

    while the mix is fluid pour into a shallow steel plate

    i took some cuts outta some flat steel 1/2" plate and bent the edge up till they met and i welded em closed as the mold

    then lean against a tree or something the bullet will compress the tannerite between itself and the plate and go off

    i'm told this dont work with the bottle mix tannerite from some places .. i dunno i have always made my own

    Thanks for that Jack. I've only ever shot at the store bought ones. I have thought about making my own, I just realized I have the aluminum and 34-0-0 fertilizer in the shed.

    i use methyl alcohol to get the nitrate to slurry

    but do so only if you know it wont get bumped , knocked , or even rattled while it set's , once set its safe as but you can set it off with tossing a jar of it while its setting

    i know this first hand .. tossed a jar of it at a cat after when i first got the geese ..

    i'm forever grateful it was a plastic jar and not glass or something ...

    oh and use hollow points even on .22's this works well
