My brother and I as teens made exploding bullets out of 16 Ga shotgun shells full of b/p with primer removed and cannon fuse put through primer hole and down side of shell with match head glued to end of fuse, loaded brass up in our .75 cal smoothbore cannon. Fantastic at night, but after one exploded 3' from the barrel, we stopped using them. They were packed right on top of the powder and the match head always lit the fuse, just not consistant burn time, sometimes it hit the ground then blew other times it blew in air and then just in front of the cannon, all with 2 3/4" of fuse.
