Some of you may be familiar with the magician's prop known as flash cotton.  I thought I'd give it a go, so I put some in my MadMax barrels.  

I learned that the effect can be pretty cool, but it takes some experimentation as  you can see in the video.  The first barrel ignites well, the second did not.

Really good flash from the first shot, good loud sound too. Excellent Very Happy

You're right, this sort of thing takes a lot of experimenting and luck too. Perhaps the flash cotton was a little too compressed together in the barrel Question
I should think that a wide barrelled shotgun is the ideal and safest type in which to use flash cotton. Gasses expand so fast when it ignites it's best to use in an open space that'll allow the gas and flash to vent out.
Nice effect, let's hope you get to video both barrels flashing bounce

Nice effect :-)

At the end I wondered if you wanted to look down the barrel ;-)
