The problem here is that we can get real life data on real life bullets, and get the damage values from there. But if the Binary Propellant rules were intended to work with caseless rounds, then we're kinda SOL (Stuck onna limb for the G rated version).

GURPS VEHICLES made the assumption that the damage of the bullets would increase with TL because of the propellants used. If I can get a ballpark estimate of what the propellant is relative to modern smokeless powder, that would be nice.
Probably something like 98% hydrogen peroxide solution + kerosene. Or look up any list of liquid rocket fuels/oxidizers.
