Okay so most PPC shooters use calcium carbide rocks mixed with a little water to create the flame to "smoke " their sights. There are other methods too.
Unfortunately, over time it seems that calcium carbide rocks break down into powder, regardless of the container being sealed.
My question is: can you employ equal amounts of calcium carbide powder in your smoker to create the flame? Or must you use the rocks?

The powder does still give off gas but it seems to clog up my Ray-Vin smoker quicker than just the rocks. I've found that if your container has a rubber seal then it will last indefinitely, if your relying on just a plastic to plastic seal then the rocks do break down over time. So yes the powder does still give off gas but not as good as the rocks alone.
