I know I am probably grasping at straws, but maybe someone remembers the old style Tannerite. I bought a case of 20 bottles about ten years ago and cannot remember the mixing formula. I have contacted David Tanner several times and he has not responded.
The case has 20 white powder filled bottles marked Tannerite that weigh 7.6 oz. each. It has one big jar "black colored powder" that is 3" tall and 4" in diameter marked Zirconium Hydride. It has a large mixing cup and a plastic spoon that I estimate would hold two tablespoons. I have had experience mixing Potassium Perchlorate and "German Blackhead " before and this is nothing like that. Any suggestions ?.

Dividing the Zirconium Hydride by 20 should get your there?

This is what I found: Tannerite target consists of an 8:1 ratio of oxidizer to catalyst, which come in separate containers and are mixed and shaken together prior to use.
