Thundermug and 1/4 scale 12-pounder sounded off today.
Didn't bring out any mortars as I had a full plate today and would be pressed for time and didn't want to have a bunch of guns to clean.

I don't often bare my soul, it's ugly and tends to frighten people.

We had a timing fuse issue and we missed the Thunder mug on the main video. We did catch it however.


Pretty boring huh?

Check the frame freezes.





These two pictures are 1/30 second apart.

Did you fill the rest of the bore with corn meal?

Did it ignite?

I don't think so. It was pretty humid last night.

Seems like one needs an external source of flame above the muzzle, like a propane torch. There isn't enough oxygen in the combustion products to support ignition of the creamer from the muzzle flame.
