    bigduke, you may well find that the thread of those caps is a BSP thread which as you probably know, confusingly, the nominal thread size does NOT equal the outside diameter of the thread. So, for...

    Would the grenades be relatively safe to handle provided that you didn't do anything obviously stupid with them like pull the pin out? Or, to put it another way, would the explosive filling have...
