Chuck,

There was an interesting YouTube video where a guy was testing ejection charges.

When the e-match lit, atthe bottom of the charge, it forced the charge out of the holder, resulting in a lot of un-burned grains.

When the e-match was on top, the powder was retained in the holder and worked well, with very few un-burned grains.

And, did they test with the e-match in the *middle* of the charge? Hmmm? Who knows? Chuck might be on to something, here.

Then again, he might not.

I could be wrong but I do not worry about it.

I don't remember if they ever tried it in the middle, or not.

I've been searching for the YouTube video, unsuccessfully. It was several years ago.

To be honest, I am tired. I hope we make it through this.
