Has anyone ever reloaded or made 3.5" rockets?

I have been interested in attempting to "reload" original or make simple rockets or subcaliber rockets for one of the Spanish 3.5"/88.9mm rocket launchers for a while now. I just recently sent in my form 1 and will be waiting on that, but I had been collecting what I could find online over the past years on the rockets and subcaliber devices and was wondering a couple things:
Someone mentioned a group from years ago that apparently made their own, but didn't seem interested in being public due to the danger; I have wondered if anyone has ever tried due to the various constraints and danger involved (particularly in achieving proper propellant burn rates).
Either in replicating, or reloading:
The US practice rockets
The short lived US 3.5" subcaliber rockets
The German made, Spanish used subcaliber rockets (which seem nigh impossible to find much about)
Spanish rockets? Are there even any in the US? I saw they have a different design involving folding fins unlike the US ones.
With looking at commercial rocket engines my concern has always been getting a proper burntime to avoid the motor frying user after launch (or just exploding). But those are of a completely motor different design propellant aside, as compared to the isolated extruded grain "rods" in the 3.5" motors.
