    I made this but it exploded then my wenis hurt. After the rest of the package fell in a fire causing a chain reaction of cascading bombardments of flaming fury on the local tortoise population. They decided to avenge me by gathering a large sum of toasters creating a robot called Toastimus Prime! I was flabbergasted by the immense escalation of the situation (like that time I went to the mall and went up the escalator) and quickly ran away. Unfortunately there was a precipice on the other side and I fell. I dropped quicker than the temperatures in a Canadian winter. At the bottom of the hill was good ol' Ranger Gord to the rescue! He saved me from the toaster but all the commotion caused a uproar in the beaver lodge downstream. They came up stream with logs in hand like a heard of wild wood chippers going berserk. I got on my dirtbike and fled the situation. Then I remembered!!! I built a Knex Explosive Tip Bullet, so I took my remaning one out and defeated all of my enemies, despite my injuries. Thank you for posting this tutorial, it has saved me!

    That sounds like quite a kerfuffle, but inspiring nonetheless.

    These would be fun to use in K'NEX wars. You'd get a satisfying "BANG" when you hit your enemy.

    it really depends if there is aomething touching the powder

    Oh, so the bullet will not explode unless the end with the cap hits the target. Correct?

    Wow, what a cool idea! This would be great for videos to show that the bullet has hit somewhere(usually its hard to see/hear the bullet ) I may try to design a mag for this :)

    Omg, I just had an idea. Put a cap in the orange connector (instead of the broken end of a rod) and when the ram hits, you get an explosion like in real life :D (on connector ammo)

    I tried your idea but but it didn't work so i instead I put the cap on the end of a mini one rod and placed it in the magazine of my m14 and it shoots makes a bang and smoke comes out the top! Thanks for the idea too!
