Primary


How does AP compare to HMDT as a primary? I failed to find both citric acid and hexamine in Vancouver.

AP is said to be more sensative to shock than HMTD.

Altho HMTD has the whole metals thing.

I have made both but got a poor yeild for HMTD so didnt waste any on a shock test.

I just use AP, cheaper and eaisier (no weighing or crushing required)

Citric acid? It is available as a food additive in supermarkets.
