Is there an Explosive Expert in the House

I wasn't sure where to post this but:
I need a blasting expert to help with a beaver dam. I'd also prefer not to have to speak with the GBI or BATF.

Can anyone help?

Bbeaver Dam

Why not use a bullet sensitive binary explosive like www.tannerite.com . Not an explosive until you mix it, Use it the same day you mix it and no storage issues. Used on private property for non commercial application and no license is needed. They ship it right to your house. We used 5lbs to completely flip over a junked car. Check youtube under tannerite.

Ain't the USA great

Go to your local VFD. There always seems to be at least one pipe bomb building psycho in every VFD. Start with the training officer.

Tannerite: very familiar ; that would be easy but the way the dam is built, there is no real way to get a bullet into it other than firing straight down from above

I learned what I know in the Army, and don't have any practical civil experience... but I will say a hot fuse is probably safer for what you're trying to do, if you can get it. Electric requires you to ground everything, all the time, meticulously, because if you get a static charge in that wire and it's enough to set off your cap, you could be in a world of hurt. That said, you get to control exactly when it goes off if you're careful.

Can you remote-rig a small pistol or something, so that a long string or R/C control would set it off under the pile, removing you from the danger zone?

Bag of fertilizer soaked in diesel, M80 or equivalent on top and a long section of cannon fuse. That should do the trick.

I can imagine rigging a bullet, especially if you handload, with a fuse instead of a primer, and some hot glue, secured in a jig at the blast site. No idea how legal that might be, but it's an idea.

Just read the Tannerite website... can you build a vertical stack, or get a couple paper towel tubes and fill 'em, and hit the top with an explosion that is focused down into the bottom of the dam?
