Got Questions? Tannerite® offers an array of Frequent Questions (and Answers) in response to inquiries about our products and the policies that surround them.
Can you make Tannerite® charges smaller or larger?
Yes you can. To make smaller targets, you can simply mix a 1/2 pound target and pour the contents into a plastic container of your choice. It’s best if the container is not brittle, but just about any container will work. A good idea when shooting either small targets, or when shooting at long ranges, is to wrap the target in Duct-Tape. This prevents a spill or leak if the bullet strikes low, a fringe hit, or hits the lid on the target. To make larger targets tape one on top of the other, by hitting one it will initiate them both. Common sense and local noise regulations dictate how much you can use without getting cited for disturbing the peace.
How many spoons of catalyst do I mix into a target?
1 LEVEL teaspoon/5cc (one scoop) per 1/2 pound target, and for one pound targets use two (2) level scoops, If you use too much catalyst, it will be “Fuel-rich” and will be a sluggish explosion or none at all. Just don’t use more catalyst than is recommended.
What if I am approached by an authority and questioned about my targets?
Be honest, show them your Tannerite® and explain what you are doing. If they have further questions please feel free to give them the Tannerite® phone number and website. Tannerite® is sold for a shot-indicator, if you are misusing the product or destroying public property we will not help you. If there are complaints about the noise, please be respectful and stop.
How could something so fun, be legal everywhere?
Tannerite® falls under the same laws as black powder and all other explosives that are exempt for sporting use. Remember though, just because it’s a legal product if used as prescribed, does not mean that you can use it in any manner you wish. Unlike firearms, you can legally shoot them however, there are places where it is forbidden. It is up to the end-user to obtain local authority permission before using our product unless it’s on private property. Even then if you live close to others it’s best to contact them and explain what you are doing.
