    a few friends and myself are looing for somwhere in the areas north of Houston were we can touch off Tannerite?

    The one place where we were doing it, the lease I was on during the off seasons, well, the owners son is becoming a bit too unbearable for us to deal with.

    Mind you, we are responsible shooters and clean up our messes...my bud shoots a bunch of Wolf and other steel case and we clean that up as well as dead targets or the pieces thereof.

    we generally set it up a little further downrange. :) lol

    also do multi-charge shots, too...most we have done I think is 17 into an old Accurate Arms 8 lb powder jug. Took down a tree with it.

    Cars are fun to play with when it comes to tannerite...can make a hard-top into a convertable fairly easily with it. :evil:

    That was just about 6 oz in the picture. We did some mulitiples too but generally because we were having trouble getting it to go off and added the un exploded mixture to the next shot. I shot two of the little bottles taped to a fairly large tree from 25 yards with a 458 Lott. Set them off and the overall loudness of the thing kept me from really noticing any recoil.

    what's the least powerful cartridge you guys have been able to set tannerite off with?

    Did a 7 charge with a 22 Hornet...factory load, Winchester Grey box.

    Otherwise, generally use 223 and 308. Want to try out my 7-30 Waters to touch it off.
