My magic computer says the 2014 jersey explosives regs have no specific loophole for small amounts.... but you can get a generic loophole for anything that the Minister feels OK about.

Basically though your mainland EXPLOSIVES licence means nothing on the islands

I have SEVERAL modern reproductions ... some home built.

Id suggest joining a group whereever you live who have cannon and talking over the local legal issues plus how they made theirs.
