I'm building an AMW FiberMAX. It will use motor ejection and a Jolly Logic Chute Release. Normally for a rocket like this I would put two #2-56 nylon shear pins on the nose cone. But since I'm just using motor ejection I would have no way to do a deployment test to verify that the ejection charge will shear the nylon shear pins. Should I just assume that the motor ejection charge will shear the pins and hope that it doesn't come down ballistic? I plan to fly it on both 38mm and 54mm motors.
