Making NitroCellulose is fairly straight forwards and Fulmcasesinate of Mercury can be made relatively easily for primers. Nitric acid and Sulphuric acid is required as is liquid Mercury. There are plenty of youtube videos showing how to reprime spent primers and 22LR cases.

I believe Smokeless requires forbidden material, nitroglycerin primers contain high ex also, cordite I believe is the simplest but all require degree of skill to make every batch consistent best of luck would like to see recipes.

Mercury Fulminate for primers is easy enough to make, requiring Mercury, Nitric Acid, Sulphuric Acid and I think Ethanol to wash it in.
It is corrosive but in a SHTF situation where normal reloading routes are not available it will do the job.

As a useful aside it can be used for DIY blasting caps too

There's several videos on youtube showing the process of making Mercury Fulminate

Mercury fulminate could work, but why not just use matchheads;

and use the primers; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_7LWCFH5Gc

    Where are you getting your info? Black powder has higher pressure than Smokeless? I don't believe that is correct. 30-30 winchester started life as a black powder cartridge and it works fine that way. Smokeless loads for it require care to keep pressure down where it should be as the rifles were originally designed for black which has much lower pressure than smokeless.

    You state that you don't want to use ground glass in your primers but you will use flint? Why is that? Flint as in striker type flint used in flintlock rifles and pistols is just as abrasive as glass. Ground glass has been and is used in primers today. The wear caused by the ground glass is pretty insignificant though it is a big issue in .22 cal suppressor cleaning. It forms a ceramic with the carbon and lead oxide which are also by products of shooting the ammo. Perchlorate primers work well though they are corrosive. They have been used for nearly 100yrs however and are long lasting, fairly simple to make and cleanup requires only water as the corrosive salt is water soluble.

    Making nitrocellulose powder is not a simple matter so finding a "recipe" to crank out a few pounds is pretty unlikely. Burn rate varies from batch to batch when you know what you're doing so imagine trying to control burn rate when you don't. It has something to do with grain size and shape as well as the formulation. I believe that while it is possible to make passable and safe black powder its not reasonably possible for the average joe to make passable and Safe smokeless.

Good luck with your project.

Frank
