Folks,

I am wondering what is the highest level motor with an ejection charge?
I thought I read in the High Power Book that ejection charges are only there until you reach an I level motor, then you must use another method of ejection

as far as I know motor ejection is available up to and including some L motors.
Of course here lately I find myself in error quite often so don't take my word on that.

I know some J motors have ejection charges, not sure on bigger stuff.

I believe that Aerotech's K185W, K550W, K695R, and K1100T reloads have ejection charges with delays of short, 6 seconds, medium, 10 seconds, long, 14 seconds and extra long, 18 seconds.

These loads use Aerotech's 54/1706 casing.

thank u, next
Cesaroni's Pro54 K660 includes delay and ejection charge, AFAIK. Other than that, the K550W/K1100T is as big as it gets... though a K700W has the same burn time/pressure profile, so you *could* use a 550W delay in the 700W if you had to.

But as far as certified goes, K660 is it! That's still a pretty hefty motor to trust to a pyro delay IMO :p
