The fun you can have with match heads! I remember filling tennis balls with 100's of the things in my misspent youth and having great fun with those! :grin:

Quite like the idea of making some larger ones of these, maybe in the bottle of a softdrink can and using them as the stop plate for PSG :good:

The next step up might be the little aluminium dishes for nightlights. Much bigger and you start getting into a lot of matches. Of course you can always buy the real thing.

Not really unless the impact was to cause a spark or raise the temperature to a critical level. If black powder was to ignite with a good wack old Rev Forsyth wouldn't have gone to the bother of inventing the percussion cap in around 1810.

Only in the film do spark fly off lead bullets. :)

Here's an interesting twist:
