Note:The bullet should be slanted downward with a 1" metal tube extending from It, blocked at the end with paper, so that the flash sets the charge off at the bottom middle. Better yet, put the detonator below the charge so the bullet rests at the bottom.
To utilize this device, remove the business end from the bullet and put a small wad of paper In the cartridge to keep the powder in. Then insert the cartridge into the explosive, align the firing pin so it will strike the primer, and set the mechanism.To detonate, pull the string.
