Bob has been president of his own civil engineering firm, North Point Engineering, Inc., for 21 years.
He obtained his Bachelor’s Degree in Architectural Engineering with a Structural Specialty from
Milwaukee School of Engineering in 1984. Bob became a Professional Engineer in 1989. Truly one
of his greatest accomplishments has been the design and building of his own home. From a dream
to a drawing on paper, Bob knew what he wanted. The project took a while to complete and was a
difficult task to do while he continued his business full time. Bob is a hands person who did his own
location of the house, concrete forms, pounding of nails, roofing, electrical, plumbing, etc.

When Bob’s boys, Blake and Brandon, became interested in rocketry it sparked his interest. He was
proud of the work that they accomplished in order to be able to accept the challenge of the NASA
Student Launch Initiative. Then the team found out that their sponsor would not be able to help them
out with the competition. It did not take Bob and his wife, Becky, long to find out who to contact to
see what would be necessary to continue forward. With the permission of the original sponsor the
team was handed over to the care of Bob. Bob found himself studying the Handbook of Model
Rocketry by G. Harry Stine and Bill Stine. He read it from cover to cover. His next adventure took
him to Alabama to see what was all involved in the competition for the NASA Student Launch
Initiative. There has been no stopping him since that time. Bob has successfully built and flown his
first rocket. He has become Level 1 certified. He has accepted the position of Team Official for the
Katalyst for Katastrophe team.


                                            NAR Mentors:

                                         Mr. John Kohler
                                       341 Barn Swallow Dr
                                          Woodstock, IL

                                  winwoodconstruction@netzero.net

John began his interest model rocketry during his years in boy scouts in the late 70’s and early 80’s.
During his high school and college years he lost touch with the hobby. In 2005 he became one of the
founding members of a newly formed NAR section in Woodstock, IL. John currently serves as the Fox
Valley Rocketeers #683 school program liaison and launch site coordinator. John quickly
reestablished his interest in model, mid and high power rocketry moving from his level 1 HP
certification to his level 2 in 2008.
John is also involved in his local community through school outreach programs and as a volunteer at
the Challenger Learning Center for Science and Technology in Woodstock, IL and serves as that
organizations rocketry coordinator since 2006.
John has been in the construction industry for the entirety of his career beginning as a laborer for his
family owned general contracting company to a union carpenter followed by 22 years as a site
Superintendent. John currently serves as the director of operations at Hard Surface Solutions in
Lombard, IL.


                                         Mr. Mark B Bundick

                                        mbundick@earthlink.net

Mark began flying model rockets in 1966 and has been an NAR member since 1970. His rocketry
interest was initially encouraged by his father, Emmett A. Bundick, who worked for NASA at the
Wallops Flight Facility, Wallops Island, VA. He has been a member of the Vikings Rocketry Society
(Richmond, VA), NIRA (Glen Ellyn, IL) and founded the Fox Valley Rocketeers (Woodstock, IL).Both

the Vikings and NIRA were three time NAR National Championship Clubs. Mark and his teammate
captured the 1976 National Team Championship. Mark also qualified for the 1978 and 1990U.S.

International Teams, and held three national flight performance records. He is a Level 1 High Power
Rocket (HPR) certified flyer. Mark has served as an NAR volunteer since 1975. In addition to serving
as a local club president, he was elected to the NAR Board of Trustees for 32 years, from 1976
through 2008, and had chaired virtually every NAR committee. He was NAR Vice President from
1978 through 1994, then served as the NAR's seventh President from 1994 through 2008.

During his Presidency, he reorganized Sport Rocketry magazine operations, established improved
insurance coverage for members and clubs, helped design, implement and maintain a new
membership computer system, created the NAR Member Guidebook, and led the strategy, research
tactics and fundraising for litigation which ultimately removed Federal explosive regulation of hobby
rocket motors. Mark also recommitted the NAR to aerospace and technology education. He
established NAR outreach to other organizations including CAP and 4-H, and developed the initial
partnership with the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) which founded TARC. He is the recipient
of the 1982 NAR President's Award, the 2008 G. Harry Stine Lifetime Achievement Award and the
2009 Howard Galloway Space modeling Service Award, considered the nation's highest sport
rocketry service honor.

Mark is a licensed private pilot with 175 hours flying time in five different aircraft. He holds an A.B.
with Honors in Economics from the College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, VA, and a MBA in
Finance from the Booth School of Business, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL. He is a member of
the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) and a lifetime
member of the NAR. Currently employed by The Evanston Group, Evanston, IL, he and his wife The
Rev. Dr. Barbara A. Bundick, reside in Woodstock, IL, and are proud parents of their twin daughters,
Elizabeth and Jennifer.

                                          Mr. Ed Chess Ph.D.

                                          ekchess@aol.com

Ed Chess was born and grew up in Shoshone, Idaho. A child of the 1950's, he developed an early
interest in model rocketry in parallel to his interest and fascination with the nascent NASA space
program. In junior high and high school, he built many Estes and Centuri model rockets and flew
them at the local football field. His active flying ceased when he attended college (B.S. in Chemistry
and Mathematics, 1976, The College of Idaho), and then graduate school (Ph.D. in Chemistry, 1982,
University of Nebraska-Lincoln), and he gave away his cherished but dusty rockets and launch pad to
a colleague's young son in 1983. Ed worked at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland,
Washington from 1981 to 1988, where he conducted research in the application of gas
chromatography and mass spectrometry to complex mixtures analysis. In 1988 Baxter Healthcare
Corporation made him an offer he could not refuse, and he moved his family of four to McHenry,
Illinois, where he is still living and working at Baxter Healthcare Corporation, leading a group of
scientists solving industrial problems and developing healthcare products using advanced chemical

spectroscopy, microscopy and imaging technologies. Ed reconnected with model rocketry during his
years serving as an Assistant Scout Master with his son's Boy Scout Troop. The troop went camping
in Wisconsin on a fateful weekend that the local Wisconsin NAR section (WOOSH, section #558) was

launching low, mid, and high power rockets at the same state park. Shortly after this eye-opening
experience, Ed joined the NAR and went through the NARTREK program, earning Bronze, Silver,
and Gold levels, to reacquaint himself with the sport and to learn about the new motors that had been
developed during his time of absence from the hobby. Ed met up with Mark Bundick, who was looking
to start a new NAR section, in late 2005 and was a founding member of the NAR section #683, the
Fox Valley Rocketeers. Ed currently holds a Level 2 NAR high power certification but likes flying all
sizes of model rockets.

member will have their own folder with all current MSDS. John will update these on a regular basis
and will also display them on the website.

A written safety plan addressing the safety of the materials used and facilities involved will be created
by John. To help prevent accidents during the construction process all team members will be briefed
on safe usage of power tools by our Team Official, Bob Krause, prior to use.

The operator of any power tool shall become familiar with the power tool before operation, know the
on / off switch location and understand use of safety guards were appropriate. All power tools shall
be used only for their intended purpose and only with their original safety guards, grounding plug,
housing, etc. in good working order. Appropriate safety equipment shall be worn during operation
including safety glasses, gloves, dust mask, etc.

All members of the team shall be familiar with the location of the fire extinguisher in workshop area
and understand it’s operation. Safety officer John will speak for several minutes at the start of each
team meeting regarding safety issues and providing training for all team members.

With possible exposure to hazardous materials our workshop area will be supplied with nitrile gloves,
safety glasses, aprons, a first aid kit, eye wash solution, and masks. In addition to the above
mentioned safety items, GFI Receptacles were recently installed in the designated workshop area to
help reduce the chance of shock hazard while using electrical power and lighting equipment.


In compliance with NAR safety requirements all team member have read and will comply with the
following safety code as dictated by NAR.



High Power Rocket Safety Code

   1. Certification. I will only fly high power rockets or possess high power rocket motors that are
      within the scope of my user certification and required licensing.
   2. Materials. I will use only lightweight materials such as paper, wood, rubber, plastic, fiberglass,
      or when necessary ductile metal, for the construction of my rocket.
   3. Motors. I will use only certified, commercially made rocket motors, and will not tamper with
      these motors or use them for any purposes except those recommended by the manufacturer. I
      will not allow smoking, open flames, nor heat sources within 25 feet of these motors.
   4. Ignition System. I will launch my rockets with an electrical launch system, and with electrical
      motor igniters that are installed in the motor only after my rocket is at the launch pad or in a
      designated prepping area. My launch system will have a safety interlock that is in series with
      the launch switch that is not installed until my rocket is ready for launch, and will use a launch

                                                    9

                         2011-2012 Proposal / Statement of Work

   switch that returns to the "off" position when released. If my rocket has onboard ignition
   systems for motors or recovery devices, these will have safety interlocks that interrupt the
   current path until the rocket is at the launch pad.
5. Misfires. If my rocket does not launch when I press the button of my electrical launch system, I
   will remove the launcher's safety interlock or disconnect its battery, and will wait 60 seconds
   after the last launch attempt before allowing anyone to approach the rocket.
6. Launch Safety. I will use a 5-second countdown before launch. I will ensure that no person is
   closer to the launch pad than allowed by the accompanying Minimum Distance Table, and that
   a means is available to warn participants and spectators in the event of a problem. I will check
   the stability of my rocket before flight and will not fly it if it cannot be determined to be stable.
7. Launcher. I will launch my rocket from a stable device that provides rigid guidance until the
   rocket has attained a speed that ensures a stable flight, and that is pointed to within 20
   degrees of vertical. If the wind speed exceeds 5 miles per hour I will use a launcher length that
   permits the rocket to attain a safe velocity before separation from the launcher. I will use a
   blast deflector to prevent the motor's exhaust from hitting the ground. I will ensure that dry
   grass is cleared around each launch pad in accordance with the accompanying Minimum
   Distance table, and will increase this distance by a factor of 1.5 if the rocket motor being
   launched uses titanium sponge in the propellant.
8. Size. My rocket will not contain any combination of motors that total more than 40,960 N-sec
   (9208 pound-seconds) of total impulse. My rocket will not weigh more at liftoff than one-third of
   the certified average thrust of the high power rocket motor(s) intended to be ignited at launch.
9. Flight Safety. I will not launch my rocket at targets, into clouds, near airplanes, nor on
   trajectories that take it directly over the heads of spectators or beyond the boundaries of the
   launch site, and will not put any flammable or explosive payload in my rocket. I will not launch
   my rockets if wind speeds exceed 20 miles per hour. I will comply with Federal Aviation
   Administration airspace regulations when flying, and will ensure that my rocket will not exceed
   any applicable altitude limit in effect at that launch site.
10. Launch Site. I will launch my rocket outdoors, in an open area where trees, power lines,
    buildings, and persons not involved in the launch do not present a hazard, and that is at as
    large on its smallest dimension as one-half of the maximum altitude to which rockets are
    allowed to be flown at that site or 1500 feet, whichever is greater least.
11. Launcher Location. My launcher will be 1500 feet from any inhabited building or from any
    public highway on which traffic flow exceeds 10 vehicles per hour, not including traffic flow
    related to the launch. It will also be no closer than the appropriate Minimum Personnel
    Distance from the accompanying table from any boundary of the launch site.
12. Recovery System. I will use a recovery system such as a parachute in my rocket so that all
    parts of my rocket return safely and undamaged and can be flown again, and I will use only
    flame-resistant or fireproof recovery system wadding in my rocket.
13. Recovery Safety. I will not attempt to recover my rocket from power lines, tall trees, or other
    dangerous places, fly it under conditions where it is likely to recover in spectator areas or
    outside the launch site, nor attempt to catch it as it approaches the ground.

Revision of July 2008




Launch Safety

Each team member will review federal, state, and local laws regarding rocket launches and motor
handling especially the Federal Aviation Regulations regarding use of airspace and in the handling
and use of low-explosives (Ammonium Perchlorate Rocket Motors, APCP).


Written Safety Statement

A written statement that all team members understand and will abide by the following safety
regulations:

   a) Range safety inspections of each rocket prior to flight
   b) The range safety officer has the final say on all rocket safety issues: therefore, the range
      safety officer has the right to deny the launch of any rocket for safety reasons.
   c) Any team that does not comply with the safety requirements will not be allowed to
      launch their rocket.

                                        Technical Design

General Vehicle Dimensions

The Katalyst for Katastrophe team has decided to use a custom designed rocket. The subsonic
rocket will be approximately 80 inches long and weigh close to 17 pounds with a 15 inch parabolic
nose cone. The 5.5 inch diameter rocket will provide ample space for a 54 millimeter diameter
Cesaroni motor. The payload area of the rocket will be approximately 2 feet long in order to provide
enough space to fit a small unmanned aerial vehicle with camera to be launched at about 700 feet
AGL. The rocket is designed to deploy a drogue parachute at apogee and then a main parachute of
60 inches at an altitude of approximately 700 feet. The Katalyst for Katastrophe team is considering
a number of different motors at this time; however the final motor used will be a K class motor.




The rocket will use an Altus Metrum TeleMini and Perfect Flight StratoLogger for its redundant
altimeters each with an arming switch capable of being locked in the ON position and accessible from
the exterior of the rocket.

Motor Type and Size


The motor the Katalyst for Katastrophe team is currently looking at using for the Launch vehicle is a
Cesaroni K660. The Cesaroni K660 is a 54 millimeter motor reload that provides a max impulse of
approximately 1,075 Newton seconds and a total burn time of 3.7 seconds.

Science Payload


The projected payload for the Katalyst for Katastrophe team will consisted of a folding wing UAV
equipped with camera and GPS in order to provide aerial photographs of ground cover for water
drainage studies. The UAV will have two control surfaces in order to move the camera over a desired
area for studies. The control surfaces will also allow for the UAV to be flown back to the operator
minimizing any unnecessary long distance travel for recovery.

The UAV will be launched from the rocket at approximately 700 ft AGL, after apogee, during the
launch of the main parachute. A sled is in the process of being designed in order to carry the UAV
safely out of the rocket without being tangled in the shock cord and/or the parachute. One of the
Katalyst for Katastrophe team members will be testing for an amateur radio technician license in
order to pilot the UAV and operate telemetry system following International Telecommunication Union
and licensed by the individual national government that regulates technical and operational
characteristics of transmissions.

                                     Educational Engagement

Community Support


Various local businesses have been or will be contacted by the team in the search of computer
support, technical support or financial support. Some of these companies are: AIA, American Girl,
Biba Builders, Builders Unlimited, and Ray Chevrolet. Transonic Research Inc, our sponsoring
corporation, is not a non-profit corporation; therefore the team’s strategy is to sell advertising space in
return for support in the above mentioned areas.



Outreach


We will be working with the Nippersink Middle School located in Richmond, IL. Our targeted
audience will be the 6th grade science classes. Our current plan is to show a PowerPoint
presentation including the history of rocketry and safety measures. Our activity will be to have the 6 th
graders build straw rockets to demonstrate the basic workings of model rocketry. With this plan all
can be accomplished within a forty minute period still allowing time for questions and answers. Meg
Vacula from the Challenger Learning Center in Woodstock, IL has offered her help in coordinating the
activity at the school.

In addition to this plan we hope be setting up a display at the Challenger Learning Center in
Woodstock during one of their Museum of Science and Industry nights. This would enable us to
educate both children and adults at the same time.

Please note that the estimated fundraising goal amount of $1,515.02 will be offset by the following
fundraising activities: The sale of advertising space on t-shirts, website, etc.; raffles of donated items;
and candy sales at school and through parent’s places of work.



Curriculum Framework and National Education Standards


Katalyst for Katastrophe will meet and exceed educational standard in multiple areas such as math
and physics as understanding use and clear explanation of design and construction plans will be
provided. Additionally, computer skills will be developed and used continually as required to type
reports, manage spreadsheets and organize technical data.



Finally, life skills will be developed and used to organize the team. We will learn to plan ahead,
monitor and adjust the plan as necessary. Time management skills will be used to balance priorities
while maintaining consistent progress to achieve the final goal, a successful launch with NASA.

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA:..................................................................... Dry chemical, alcohol foam. carbon dioxide (CO2), dry sand, limestone
powder.
FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: .................................................... During a fire, smoke may contain the original materials in addition to
combustion products of varying composition which may be toxic and/or irritating. Combustion products may include, but are not limited to: oxides
of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, volatile amines, ammonia, nitric acid, nitrosamines. When mixed with sawdust, wood chips, or
other cellulosic material, spontaneous combustion can occur under certain conditions. If hardener is spilled into or mixed with sawdust, heat is
generated as the air oxidizes the amine. If the heat is not dissipated quickly enough, it can ignite the sawdust.
SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES:......................................... Use full-body protective gear and a self-contained breathing apparatus.
Use of water may generate toxic aqueous solutions. Do not allow water run-off from fighting fire to enter drains or other water courses.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

SAFE HANDLING INFORMATION
Storage:
Store at room temperature. Avoid mechanical or electrical abuse. DO NOT short or install
incorrectly. Batteries may explode, pyrolize or vent if disassembled, crushed, recharged or
exposed to high temperatures. Install batteries in accordance with equipment instructions. Do
not mix battery systems, such as alkaline and zinc carbon, in the same equipment. Replace all
batteries in equipment at the same time. Do not carry batteries loose in pocket or bag. Do not
remove battery tester or battery label.
Transport:
Batteries are not regulated by international agencies as hazardous materials or dangerous goods
when shipped. Duracell uses the article name 'Alkaline Batteries - Non-hazardous' on all
domestic and international bills of lading.
Spills:
Notify safety personnel of large spills. Caustic potassium hydroxide may be released from
leaking or ruptured batteries. Avoid eye or skin contact and inhalation of vapours. Increase
ventilation. Clean-up personnel should wear appropriate protective gear. Remove spilled
liquid with absorbent and contain for disposal.
Disposal:
Individual consumers may dispose of spent (used) batteries with household trash. Duracell does
not recommend that spent batteries be accumulated (quantities of five gallons or more should be
disposed of in a secure landfill, in accordance with appropriate regulations). Do not incinerate,
since batteries may explode at excessive temperatures.

Hodgon Black Powder
Material Data Safety Sheet
DANGER EXPLOSIVE: Pellets are extremely flammable. Failure to follow warnings and instructions for use,
or misuse of this product in any way, may cause personal injury or death to the user or bystander, as well as
damage to the firearm and other property. Use Pellets only in strict accordance with loading instructions.

Keep Pellets out of reach of children.
Do not take Pellets internally.
Do not contaminate Pellets with dirt or moisture.
Keep Pellets in original, closed box until used. Do not place Pellets loose in clothing.
Do not smoke when handling Pellets.
Keep Pellets away from heat, sunlight, open flame, sparks from any source, static electricity and moisture. Be
sure box is closed while shooting.

Do not subject Pellets to impact or friction.
Store Pellets in original container in a cool, dry place, away from primers, explosives, solvents, gasoline, or
other sources of ignition.

Always wear ear and eye protection when handling, loading and firing firearms, and using Pellets.
Discharging firearms in poorly ventilated areas, cleaning firearms, or handling ammunition may result in
exposure to lead and other substances known to cause birth defects, reproductive harm, and other serious
physical injury. Have adequate ventilation at all times. Wash hands thoroughly after exposure.

Pellets are intended to be used in place of granular powder. Do not combine Pellets with loose powder. Do not
combine Pellets of different caliber sizes.

Never mix powders or use nitrocellulose based smokeless powder in muzzleloading firearms.
Do not ignite Pellet in hand or outside of firearm.
Do not break, cut or modify Pellet by any means.
INTENDED USE

Triple Seven and Pyrodex Pellets are designed for use only in newly manufactured muzzleloading, in-line rifles
of 50 caliber, 54 caliber, and 45 caliber. Use Triple Seven only in a 209 primer ignition system. Pyrodex may be
used with standard cap, musket cap or 209 primer ignition systems. Use only the correct caliber Pellet
designated for the given caliber rifle. They are designed to be used with saboted bullets or conicals together
with a fiber wad. Any other use of the Pellets is not recommended. Triple Seven Pellets are not for use in
cartridges, or with patched round ball. Pyrodex Pellets may be used in cartridges.

Pistol Pellets are designed and intended for use only in newly manufactured modern replica 44 and 45 caliber
cap and ball revolvers. They may also be used in 45 caliber in-line rifles. Any other use of the Pistol Pellet is
not recommended.
MISUSE WARNING

Use of Triple Seven Pellets and Pyrodex Pellets in sidelock muzzleloading rifles, in flintlock muzzleloading
rifles, using a patched round ball, or the use of conical lead bullets without a fiber wad is NOT recommended.
Due to variations in the size and type of flash channels of such rifles, as well as different rifle bore diameters,

and conical bullet sizes, hangfires (a delayed ignition of the Pellet) or an improper gas seal of the projectile may
occur. These conditions could cause the projectile or a burning Pellet to exit the barrel in a hazardous manner,
which could cause personal injury or death to the user or bystander, as well as damage to the firearm.
PROJECTILE WARNING

Never load and fire a Pellet without a projectile in the barrel, sealed on the Pellet. To do so may cause a burning
Pellet to exit the barrel causing personal injury or property damage to the user or bystander.

When loading any projectile, be certain the projectile fits the bore snugly and forms a proper gas seal. Make
sure projectile is seated all the way down the bore on top of the Pellet. Failure to do so may result in decreased
performance, poor accuracy or the possibility of a burning Pellet particle exiting the barrel, which may cause
personal injury or property damage to the user or bystander.
MAXIMUM LOAD WARNING

45 and 50 CALIBER RIFLE:
45 Caliber Pellets come in one size: 50 grain
50 Caliber Pellets come in two (2) sizes:
50 grain volume equivalent which equals 50 grains of loose powder by volume.
30 grain volume equivalent which equals 30 grains of loose powder by volume.

The maximum load per shot should never exceed total Pellets containing more than 100 grains volume
equivalent. That means, no more than:
45 Caliber 1) Two (2) 50 grain Pellets
2) Three (3) 44/45 caliber 30 grain
50 Caliber 1) Three (3) 30 grain Pellets, or
2) Two (2) 50 grain Pellets, or
3) One (1) 50 grain Pellet and one (1) 30 grain Pellet

54 CALIBER RIFLE:
54 Caliber Pyrodex Pellets come in one size only:
60 grain volume equivalent which equals 60 grains of loose powder by volume.

The maximum load per shot should never exceed 120 grains (2) Pellets.

44/45 CALIBER PISTOL:
The maximum load per each revolver chamber should never exceed one (1) revolver Pellet. Exceeding
maximum load may cause damage to the firearm and cause personal injury or death to the shooter or
bystanders.

* At no time should the shooter exceed the firearm manufacturers recommended maximum load. If there is a
question concerning the firearm maximum load, please contact the firearm manufacturer for guidance.
RIFLE LOADING INSTRUCTIONS

CAUTION: Some rifle manufacturers may recommend the use of a number of Pellets in their rifles which
exceed Hodgdon’s “MAXIMUM LOAD WARNING.” Hodgdon specifically disclaims any and all liability

arising out of the use of any data which exceeds Hodgdon’s “MAXIMUM LOAD WARNING” and the user
assumes all risk in doing so.
LOAD WARNING

Failure to load firearm in strict accordance with these instructions may cause personal injury or death to the user
or bystander, as well as damage to the firearm.
IMPORTANT:

Each Pyrodex Pellet contains a black ignitor on one end. When loading the Pellet, for best ignition, place the
black ignitor end of the Pellet into the barrel first. No orientation is necessary for Triple Seven Pellets.
BEFORE LOADING

Place gun on safety as per firearm manufacturer’s instructions.

Be certain that firearm is unloaded and that the barrel and flash channel are clean, dry and free of oil or
lubricant.

Clear flash channel by placing and firing at least two (2) 209, #11, or musket cap primers with gun muzzle
pointed in a safe direction. Be sure no cap foil, or primer debris plugs the nipple.
TO LOAD

Keep firearm on safety. Place muzzle away from body and insert the correct number of Pellets into the gun
muzzle first (see maximum load warning). Next, insert sabot/bullet or fiber wad and conical bullet into muzzle
and seat firmly on top of Pellet with ramrod. WARNING: Do not pound on ramrod or seat projectile with
excessive force so as to crush Pellet. However, be certain that no air space exists between the projectile and
Pellet. If an air space exists, the projectile becomes an obstruction in the barrel, which upon firing the gun, may
cause personal injury or death to the user or bystander as well as damage to the firearm.

Place muzzle in a safe direction and insert the correct primer. Aim firearm in safe direction, remove safety and
fire.

Position unloaded revolver with barrel in vertical upright position, preferably in a loading stand.

Place revolver hammer in half-cock position.

With muzzle of revolver barrel away from body, rotate cylinder and align an empty chamber in cylinder with
barrel and drop one (1) Pyrodex Pistol Pellet down barrel into empty chamber.

Rotate cylinder to next empty chamber and repeat step 3 until five (5) chambers are loaded. (WARNING) it is
recommended as a safety precaution that only five (5) chambers be loaded, leaving empty chamber for the
hammer to rest on when the remaining chambers are loaded.

With five chambers now loaded with Pellets, rotate cylinder and place a .44 or .45 caliber Ox-Yoke Wonder
Wad® (or equivalent felt wad) in each chamber, seating each wad with revolver loading lever on top of Pellet.

Next, rotate cylinder and place correct size 44 or 45 caliber pure lead round ball in each chamber, seating each
ball with loading lever on top of felt wad.

WARNING: Be certain that no air space exists between the projectile (ball) and Pellet. If an air space exists, the
projectile becomes an obstruction in the chamber, which upon firing the revolver, may cause personal injury or
death to the user or bystander, as well as damage to the firearm.

With revolver barrel pointed in a safe direction, rotate cylinder and insert proper size percussion cap on each of
the nipples of the loaded chambers. Revolver is now ready to be fired. Aim firearm in safe direction, place
hammer in full cock position and fire.
PROJECTILES FOR USE WITH PELLETS


Sabots: Due to the higher energy, more efficient nature of Triple Seven and Pyrodex Pellets, certain sabots may
not function properly. To insure shooter satisfaction with Pellets, it is recommended that the following
guidelines be followed when selecting sabots:

Use only one piece sabots; sabots designed in two or three pieces will not survive Triple Seven or Pyrodex
Pellets.
For 45 caliber rifles, select a sabot that will use a 40 caliber bullet.
For 50 caliber rifles, select a sabot that will use a 45 caliber bullet.
For 54 caliber rifles, select a sabot that will use a 50 caliber bullet. (Pyrodex Pellets only)

Failure to follow these recommendations may result in poor accuracy and low customer satisfaction. Sabot
failure is expected with any sabot that does not meet our recommendations. A sabot failure is a very evident
event. Recovered sabots will be fragmented and torn. A sabot that fails will cause the bullet to behave
erratically, resulting in sub-par accuracy.

Conical bullets with fiber wads: To insure successful performance of conical bullets in 50 caliber rifles with
Pyrodex Pellets, a charge of 100 grains, two (2) 50 grain Pellets and a fiber wad must be used between the

                                                        45

                               2011-2012 Proposal / Statement of Work

Pellets and the base of the conical bullet. The fiber wad will provide an adequate gas seal at the base of the
conical bullet preventing gas from escaping around the conical bullet. Failure to use a fiber wad with a conical
bullet may result in excessive leading of the bore, poor accuracy, low velocity and/or launching a flaming Pellet
downrange, igniting ground cover upon impact. (Read warnings). Fiber wads are commercially available from a
number of sources; they may be made from wool felt or plant fiber materials. These wads are generally
lubricated with an all natural lube which assists in the creation of a gas seal and keeps fouling soft in the bore.
PELLET BALLISTIC DATA

Ballistic data shown in this brochure has been developed in our laboratory under strictly controlled conditions.
Ballistic data can vary considerably depending on many factors including components used, how such
components are assembled, degree of fouling or leading of the barrel, the type of firearm used, and the loading
techniques and safety precautions utilized by the individual. NEVER mix any two powders regardless of type,
brand or source. NEVER substitute smokeless powder for Pellets.

Material Data Safety Sheet
2. The term ‘black powder’ does not refer to any powder black in color.
Modern smokeless powders are also black in color and should never be
used in a cap & ball revolver.
Danger: Use of smokeless powder in any cap & ball revolver
will result in excessively high pressures and can cause serious
damage to the revolver and possibly bodily injury to the shooter
and bystanders.
3. Always be sure that the propellant you select is commercially
manufactured black powder or Pyrodex® for use in muzzleloaders
offered for sale by a reputable dealer. TAKE NO CHANCES!
4. Pyrodex® is intended to be used on the same volume basis as black
powder.
5. Store propellants according to the manufacturer’s instructions listed on
each container. Local fire regulations should also be followed. Store
securely and safely out of reach of children.
Caution: Never smoke while loading, shooting or handling
propellants. Always follow the manufacturer's safety precautions
as listed on the propellants’ container.
Projectiles
• Round Ball:
a. The recommended projectile to assure greatest accuracy and consistency
from your revolver is a round ball (cast or swaged) of pure
lead.
b. See Recommended Revolver Loads (below) for the suitable ball diameter
for a specific caliber and revolver style.
• Conical Bullets:
a. Conical bullets were originally used to provide greater knock-down
power.
b. Inherently, conical bullets are not as accurate as round balls primarily
because during loading they become canted and therefore enter the
bore at an angle.
Note: Do not exceed the maximum charges or change powder
granulation as noted in the Recommended Revolvers Loads chart. The proper
charge for a cap & ball revolver is an efficient load, providing consistent
ignition, velocity.
Note: Do NOT patch balls (or bullets), as is customary with muzzleloading
rifles. Shooting patches are never used with revolvers.

Introduction
1. This manual contains instructions, cautions and dangers for the safe use
of cap & ball firearms. It is important that you read, understand and be
willing to always follow them completely.
2. When properly handled, a cap & ball revolver is safe and enjoyable to
use, if you follow a few basic rules.
3. There is no way to build a cap & ball revolver to absolve the user of the
need to use good judgement.
4. Your cap & ball revolver should always be treated with the respect due
any firearm in addition to specific cautions and dangers outlined in this
manual.
Note: If after reading the instructions, cautions and dangers contained in this
manual, you are not willing to accept the responsibilities involved in shooting a
blackpowder revolver, return the revolver to your dealer before firing or contact
Traditions, P. O. Box 776, Old Saybrook, CT 06475, Tel. 860-388-4656.
Important Safety Precautions
1. Always wear shatterproof glasses and appropriate ear protection.
2. Use black powder or Pyrodex® only.
3. Never fire a revolver unless the projectile is firmly seated against the
powder charge.
4. Do not exceed recommended maximum powder charges.
5. Never lean over or point muzzle toward yourself or anyone else.
6. Treat a misfire or failure to fire as though the revolver can fire at any
moment.
7. Handle your revolver with all the respect due any firearm.
8. Be sure all bystanders are behind you when firing. Flames and cap bits
sometime exit to the side of the gun.
9. Never smoke or be near ignition source while loading, shooting or
handling black powder or Pyrodex®.
10. Always leave one chamber unloaded. This is called the “safety
chamber”. Rest the hammer on the capless nipple of this empty chamber
when the other chambers are loaded and awaiting to be fired.
11. Always be sure to seal the loaded chambers with Traditions Wonder Lube
1000 or Revolver Wonder Wads to prevent “chain-fires” (the simultaneous
ignition of more than one chamber).
12. When aiming a blackpowder revolver, never place ‘free’ hand in front of
cylinder. Possible injury could result in the event of a “chain-fire”.
13. If a cylinder with a loaded chamber must be removed, be sure all caps
(unfired and fired) have been removed from the nipples.
14. Make sure your gun is unloaded before you store it.

                                                                          48

                                      2011-2012 Proposal / Statement of Work
15. Store your gun separately from its various shooting components; in
secure locked dry places well away from children.
Verifying Your Gun Is Unloaded
1. With the revolver pointed in a safe direction, place hammer in the halfcock
position.
2. Rotate the cylinder and check that all the nipples are void of percussion
caps. Remove any percussion caps immediately.
3. Take a wooden dowel or cleaning rod and insert one end down the
barrel and into the cylinder. Mark dowel at muzzle. Be sure that the
dowel has entered the chamber in line with the barrel.
4. Remove rod and lay it along outside of barrel, lining up mark at muzzle.
5. The opposite end of the rod should reach the nipple at the back of the
chamber. Rotate cylinder and repeat for the remaining chambers. If the
mark on the dowel does not line up properly, the gun is either loaded
or obstructed and should be cleared before proceeding. This practice
will assure the gun is unloaded.
Preparation Before Loading
Note: Your new revolver should be cleaned prior to loading to remove any
factory oils.
1. Disassembly, based on revolver style:
• ’Colt’-style revolver disassembly:
a. Remove the wedge, located just forward of the cylinder by tapping it
through the slot in the side of the barrel. When new, extra force will
be required to remove the wedge.
Note: The small flat screw above the wedge retains the wedge from falling
out completely. It does not secure the wedge in the slot.
b. Place hammer in half-cock position (first audible ‘click’).
c. Rotate the cylinder, so that the loading lever, when lowered, will hit
the area between two cylinder chambers. This allows you take
advantage of using the leverage of the loading lever to help in the
separation of the barrel from the frame.
d. Separate the barrel from the frame.
Note: When new, parts fit together tightly. Therefore, it may be necessary
to sharply hit the front portion of the cylinder with a wooden or plastic
mallet in order to separate the barrel from the frame. When doing so, hit
both sides of the front of the cylinder in turn. Be certain that the frame will
not fall too far when it separates from the barrel. Over time, from repeated
takedowns and reassemblies, parts will become burnished (broken-in) and
separate and fit together much more easily.
e. Remove the cylinder from the cylinder pin.
f. To reassemble, reverse sequence.
• ’Remington’-style revolver disassembly:
a. Partially lower loading lever. Make certain plunger does not enter a
cylinder chamber.
b. Pull or tap out the T-shaped cylinder pin located under the barrel.
c. Place hammer in half-cock position (first audible ‘click’). Rotate the
cylinder out of the frame.
d. To reassemble, reverse sequence. Note: The cylinder is custom fitted
to your revolver therefore the tolerances are close. With careful manipulation
and practice, this process will get easier. Do not force the
cylinder into the frame. Be patient.
• ’Starr’-style revolver disassembly:
a. Loosen round trapped nut located on upper rear of right side of
revolver.
b. Pull out or tap to release.
c. Tilt barrel forward.
d. Remove cylinder by sliding it rearward.
2. Clean the interior of all cylinder chambers using cotton swab dipped in

                                                                       49

                                            2011-2012 Proposal / Statement of Work
a cleaning solvent, such as Traditions Wonder Lube 1000TM Bore
Cleaning Solvent.
3. Place cylinder so that the chambers face down for easy draining.
4. Run a cleaning patch soaked with solvent through the barrel.
5. Run clean, dry swabs and patches into the chambers and through the
barrel, make sure they are clean.
6. During reassembly, LIGHTLY oil all moving parts and grease the
grooves of the cylinder pin.
Note: If shooting is going to commence shortly, take care not to put oil
inside the chambers or nipples.
Propellant
1. Black powder or Pyrodex® are the only safe propellants to be use in any
cap & ball revolver.

Loading and Shooting a Cap & Ball Revolver
Caution: Always keep the barrel pointed in a safe direction.
Always wear suitable eye and ear protection when loading and
shooting any gun.
1. Check to be sure that your revolver is unloaded (as described earlier).
2. Set the hammer at half-cock position and verify that revolver cannot be
fired (the hammer cannot be moved) when trigger is pulled or the
hammer is pushed.
3. With gun POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION, place a No. 10 or 11
percussion cap on the nipple of each unloaded chamber.
a. Turn the cylinder so that a nipple aligns with the cut-out on the

                                                                              50
                                             Katalyst for Katastrophe
                                      2011-2012 Proposal / Statement of Work
right side of the frame. Angle muzzle downward.
b. It may be necessary to pinch the cap out of round to assure a snug
fit on the nipple. Nipples and caps vary slightly in diameter.
Advice: Use of a capper to place the cap onto the nipple is advised.
Percussion caps are sensitive to pressure and can explode under
extreme finger pressure.
4. Fully cock the hammer and pull the trigger to fire the cap to dry out
the base of the chamber and nipple. Repeat this procedure for all
nipples to insure that each chamber is thoroughly dry.
5. Check to be sure no UNFIRED caps have been inadvertently left on the
nipples. If so, fire them.
6. Place hammer at half-cock position.
7. Rotate cylinder and remove all spent caps.
8. Hold the muzzle upward. Be sure no part of the body is in front of the
revolver. Using a revolver powder measure, pour a measured charge
into a chamber. See loading chart. Rotate cylinder. Repeat procedure for
the other chambers. Never pour powder directly from flask or manufacturers
container into chambers.
Caution: Normally only five chambers of a six-shot gun are loaded.
The gun is used and carried with the hammer resting on the
uncapped nipple of the unloaded chamber. To do so will reduce
the possibility of accidental firing .
9. Place a properly sized ball or bullet onto the opening of the chamber.
The ball or conical bullet should be slightly oversized so it will not enter
the chamber without pressure.
Note: If cast balls are being used, place sprue (flat surface) upward.
10. Rotate cylinder to place ball directly under loading lever plunger.
11. Using the loading lever, and apply moderate pressure to seat ball into
the chamber and firmly on top of the powder.
a. A thin ring of lead will be shaved off the ball at the opening of the
chamber. This occurrence illustrates that the ball is properly fitted to the
chamber and will not move off the powder during the firing of the
other chambers.
b. Be sure ball or conical bullet is firmly seated against powder. No air
space should exist between ball and powder.
Danger: Firing a revolver with the ball or conical bullet off the
powder may cause serious damage to the firearm and possibly
injury to the shooter or bystanders.
12. Repeat this loading procedure for additional chambers deliberately
leaving one empty to serve as a safety chamber.
13. Once a projectile has been seated in each of the chambers, fill the
remaining portion of each loaded chamber with Traditions Wonder
Lube 1000 or a Revolver Wonder Wad. The lube should be flush with
the top of the opening of each chamber. The lube or Wonder Wad
lubricates the bore of the barrel and keeps the blackpowder fouling soft
to allow more shots between cleanings and easier cleaning at the end of
a shooting session. It is also acceptable to put a Wonder Wad after the
powder and before the ball.
Caution: Wonder Lube 1000 and Wonder Wads seal each
chamber to reduce the possibility of a “chain fire”; when a spark
from the fired chamber crosses over the front of the cylinder and
causes other chambers to fire at the same time. When aiming a
revolver, never place “free hand” in front of the cylinder. Possible
bodily injury could result in the event of a “chain fire” (multiple
chamber ignition). Use new wads each time.
14. With gun POINTED IN ASAFE DIRECTION and hammer in half-cock
position, place a #10 or #11 percussion cap on the nipple of each loaded
chamber. The gun is NOW LOADED!
                                                                        51
                                              Katalyst for Katastrophe
                                       2011-2012 Proposal / Statement of Work
Note: It may be necessary to pinch the cap walls out of round to get a snug
fit. Caps and nipples can vary in size.
15. Pull hammer to full cock position. You are READY TO FIRE!
16. Be sure of your target, what’s beyond it and the back stop before you
fire.
17. FIRE!
18. After firing all loaded chambers, wait one minute to reload. This allows
any remaining sparks or embers to burn out prior to reloading.
19. If a misfire or failure to fire occurs, wait at least one minute with the gun
pointed at the target. After the other chambers have been fired:
a. Place hammer in ‘half-cock’ position.
b. Rotate cylinder and remove cap from nipple of the misfired
chamber. Make certain the gun is always pointed in a safe direction.
c. Push a nipple pick through the hole in the nipple into the main
charge to clear away any possible obstruction.
d. Place a new cap on the nipple and refire that chamber.
e. If the cap ignites but the chamber still does not fire, wait one minute
with gun pointed at target.
Danger: If cylinder with a loaded chamber(s) must be
removed, be sure all unfired and fired caps have been removed
from the nipples. It is possible for a chamber to fire even though
not in the gun. This could cause serious injury to the shooter or
bystanders.
f. Place hammer in half-cock position and remove all caps.
g. Remove cylinder from gun.
h. Use a revolver nipple wrench, remove the nipple of the unfired
chamber.
i. Clean the nipple thoroughly and dry it completely.
j. Push a nipple pick through nipple hole of the cylinder to loosen the
powder at the rear of the chamber.
k. Pour small amount of fresh powder into the nipple hole.
l. Reinsert and tighten nipple.
m. Clear away all loose powder around the outside of the cylinder.
n. Replace cylinder in gun.
o. Place new cap onto nipple.
p. With gun POINTED IN SAFE DIRECTION, pull hammer to
full-cock position. You are now READY TO FIRE!
q. FIRE!
20. If the chamber still does not fire, and after all chambers have been fired,
remove cylinder from the gun. Remove the nipple of the unfired
chamber(s), soak cylinder in hot water to flush out the powder and
push the ball or bullet out from the rear of the chamber (nipple hole
end), using an aluminum, wood or brass rod, definitely not steel.
Cleaning and Maintenance
1. Black powder fouling is extremely corrosive and can rust the barrel and
cylinder in a short time. All black powder guns must be cleaned
thoroughly after the firing session is completed.
2. Completely disassemble the gun.
3. Wipe off the grips.
4. Soak all metal parts in warm water and dish detergent and wipe off the
fouling, or use a brush and black powder solvent, such as bore cleaner
to scrub off the fouling.
5. Rinse all the metal parts in warm water.
6. Dry all parts thoroughly
7. Apply a light rust preventative oil such as Traditions Gun Oil (A1232)
to all metal parts. Lightly oil all moving parts, grease grooves of
cylinder pin and reassemble. Do not apply the oil heavily, as this will
contribute to additional fouling during shooting and require more

                                                                         52

                                     2011-2012 Proposal / Statement of Work
cleaning between shots.
Note: Nipple Sizes - Revolvers come in three basic sizes. small frame such
as the the Pocket Remington and Wells Fargo. Medium frame such as the
Colt Army and Navy and Remington Army and large frame such as the
Colt Walker and Dragoons. The small frame models have standard size
nipples however, they require a nipple wrench like that of the medium
frame models yet with a narrower body in order to fit into the smaller
cavity in the cylinder. The medium frame models require a standard
revolver nipple wrench. The larger frame revolvers, with the larger
nipples, require a larger wrench with a wider opening to span the
distance between the flats of the larger nipple. Check with your local
retail dealer for whichever wrench you need.
Caution: Store firearms in a secure dry place with sufficient
ventilation. If stored in a container it should be well ventilated.
Always store firearms and all shooting components well locked
and secured from children.
Important: If you sell, trade or give this revolver to another person,
make sure that you give the new owner a copy of this manual.

5.0 FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Extinguishing Media:
In case of fire, use water, dry chemical, chemical foam, or alcohol-resistant foam to contain surrounding fire.
Exposure Hazards During Fire:
Exposure to extreme heat may cause ignition.
Combustion Products from Fire:
During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion.
Fire Fighting Procedures:
Keep all persons and hazardous materials away. Allow material to burn itself out. As in any fire, wear a selfcontained
breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective
gear.
Special Instructions / Notes:
These articles burn rapidly and generate a significant flame for a short period of time. Black powder is a
deflagrating explosive. It is very sensitive to flame and spark and can also be ignited by friction and impact.
When ignited unconfined, it burns with explosive violence and will explode if ignited under even slight
confinement. Do not inhale exhaust products.
