Perchlorate black powder?

Most available oxidizer for beginners is probably KNO3, but it is hard to make composite propellant from it. Is it wrong to think that
components used for composite (epoxide resin etc) are inferior to sugar as fuels - and "candy propellant" or even black powder with ammonium perchlorate instead of KNO3 would be very powerful propellant? Any experiences from folks having access to perchlorate?

You are asking for disaster.
If you want to work with ammonium perc based propellants, read up on them and use formulae & methods developed by people who know what they are doing. Such propellants are indeed more powerful, but unless formulated and made correctly thay can be MUCH less stable than your sugar propellant. Your suggested perc BP comp would result in a bomb rather than a rocket.

Read up or take a class. Ammonium perchlorate composite can be safer than BP to mix.. Again you have to know what you are doing. I agree with John that the mixture you profess is flirting with disaster.
Alway, always, always, test at great distances out in the middle of nowhere before trying to fly anything.

I don't plan to test it :-) Perchlorates are not available and also illegal in Estonia. Just wondering why mixes so popular with one oxidizer are not used with other. No data about use of perchlorate BP in military in past? As fuel for nozzleless rockets?
