  1. not sure where to post ,

    anyone remember what the bp fill weight of a typical Standard / Astra / Brocks banger was ?

    a figure of about 70mg seems to come to mind.

    can anyone confirm ?

    Hmmm thats not much - must have been pokey powder ? Thinking probobally at least 1g ?
     
  3. The ones I remember from the 90's,the red and white standard ones and yellow Astra one's with the crimped end and dome of brown compo for a fuse, I'd hazard a guess between 1 and 2 grams
