Sonic Boom Exploding Targets are very safe when used as intended and the directions are followed. Once mixed it must be impacted with a high velocity round placed in the center or near center of the target to ignite the target. A shot in any side of the target will just rotate it or possibly might rip the jar causing contents to fall out, it is impossible to go off by trying to light it with a match or hitting it with a hammer or shooting it with a 9mm round. It takes roughly a 40 grain bullet traveling at 2200 FPS directly impacting it to guarantee success, anything slower or lighter could cause the target to not ignite. Failure to completely mix the catalyst and oxidizer in its entirely will cause a target not to ignite properly. Please mix well! Mixing all the contents in a sealable plastic bag is the fastest easiest way to mix.
Each target contains two components, a oxidizer and a catalyst which is pre-measured for each target and sealed in a bag on the outside of the jar. To prep the target for use (first read and ensure you understand all directions and safety instructions on the label of the target), simply open the target, remove the catalyst bag from the side of the target and dump the contents back into the jar. Seal the container back up, mix in a shaking / twisting motion for 60 to 90 seconds make sure all white prills are coated if you experience issues mixing the target use a plastic sealable bag as a faster way to mix. Place the target at a safe distance of 100+ yards and do not place target around objects that can become shrapnel. Then take aim and fire.
