Ordered a few boxes of these hoping they were a bit larger but are just over 1/8 inch in diameter. Will need to use these in the 40 cal and use a stun dart to propel it. Haven't tried them yet but will provide an update.

Has anyone ever tried these in a blowgun?

BTW, these are a novelty firework.

The ones I have are a 1/4 inch in diameter . They make great targets for slingshots and blowguns . Facing on end they have a small 1/4 "profile . I have shot them as ammo off a slingshot with goods results . Never used the blowgun to launch them but if I did I would drill a 1/4 " hole in the front of a coldsteel stun dart and then insert the load . No doubt that would work well . You can also just get a matching 1/4' tube size and make the blowgun to launch the crackers with that .

It's time could dig out the power drill and 1/4" bit. I have a 4' CS Pro at work and hopefully entertain my co-workers on the cement block wall. I'll keep all posted on how it goes.

Where do you get the 1/4" crackers from? I'm here in the states.

I stand corrected. The diameter of my cracker is basically 1/4" (looked smaller). Tried the next smaller bit (15/64) and found it better to run the drill in reverse so it doesn't grab. The CS dart is soft plastic and drilled well and the crackers fit great.

Updates to follow...
