Odd flight. Wiggled twice on the way up, once just after it left the rod, once just before ejection. Ejection charge didn't completely clear nose cone and it some in semi-ballistic. Parachute deployed after the bounce. Turned out the parachute took the brunt of the ejection charge, which blew through the dog barf and scorched the chute.

Actual Altitude: 400.00 Feet
