(I don't expect you to have the answers to those questions, I'm just thinking out loud).
I think I'll try to drill out some hollow points and face the bb forwards instead...I have some 28gr 22cal that would fit a shload of that powder...oh what fun!
I think hitting bone would set it off. If the powder will withstand molten lead, one could pour a seal instead of a hard bb...or just use a lead ball in that cal.
After researching homemade formulas it appears the daring could custom tune the sensitivity. but I found some basic stuff here ....
