    Could you load the case with a small amount of powder then use a paper wad then top it off with candle wax?

    Thought I would ask before I blow myself up.

    Thanks in advance..

    Yes. You can also use a thin peice of leather to hold the powder in place. I used an empty case to cut the leather, just place it on the leather, and whack it with a hammer, cuts it to the proper size.

    I made some the other night with .45/70 cases and wads of toilet paper. Makes big boom and lots of flash with just a couple grains of green or red dot...:D
