DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for your use or misuse of this knowledge, exploding darts are inherently dangerous and I won't be held responsible for your actions. I provide this information for educational purposes only, do not attempt to recreate what you are about to see.

So I've seen plenty of exploding darts around the interwebs, but usually they use cheap and disappointing caps, or expensive and dangerous .22 ammo. I've seen a couple guys use fuseless firecrackers, but they usually just tape them to a mini broadhead or something. I wanted something reusable and quick to reload, consistent, and elegant if I may be so bold. What I came up with was a piece of 1/4" x 1" silicone coated fiberglass sleeving, a .50 cal stun dart, and some "Sumo Snap" fuseless firecrackers.

Sumo Snaps come packed with sawdust just like the cheap pop-it's

The 3 main components. .50 stun dart, silicone coated fiberglass sleeving, fuseless firecracker

This is basically it, just unloaded.

Now a fuseless firecracker is GENTLY inserted to the metal part of the stun dart. And there you have it, a simple, elegant, reusable exploding dart. While they can be reused, there will be a significant amount of fiberglass dust the first couple of times.
Again, this article is for EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY! I am not responsible for your actions, and I WILL NOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS! Putting a firecracker anywhere near your face is dangerous and stupid and could result in SEVERE INJURY OR DEATH.

Those snaps make good exploding targets when shot with a stun dart .
I actually learned this about 2 days ago when I discovered your youtube channel. Very high quality stuff, I really like the match lighting and card cutting videos.
