Default 60mm blackpowder mortar with landyard firing mechanism

Here is a little video showing my 60mm mortar firing a 5lb redbull can filled with concrete. It fires with a landyard using a 209 shotgun primer.

I am using powder bags of 250 grains of homemade black powder. It sends the 5lb projectile around 300-400 yards downrange.

Are you using fuses to set mortar off? What projectiles are you using?

Green Visco fuse and I used the drop method on the old BFS 60mm mortar...
Which most cannon guys really disagree with... Plaster filled Red Bull cans for the projo's... We were pushing the backstop out at the Big Sandy shoot... I don't recall the yardage but it's deep...

Here are the last 5 Primer Firing Device that I have. They are CNC machined out of Stainless Steel and will work with any 209 shotgun primer. These give you the option to run a lanyard at a safe distance from whatever black powder cannon or mortar you choose. They attach with a 1/2-20 thread. The blast is very strong and will ignite your powder charge BIG LEAGUE!.

Price is $325 shipped and paypal'd

Thanks, Matt
