Tannerite

You could say that :thumb1: we loaded a 50 year old washing machine up with a little tannerite (ammonium nitreate and powdered aluminum). Its popular explosive used in target shooting now a days. When I was little, my uncle used to make homemade cocktails of the stuff but now its available at gun shops, at least around here anyway. Its not explosive until you mix the two components together, and even then you have to set it off with a high caliber rifle, like say an AR or maybe a .223 :whistle:Its a christmas tradition around here, kind of like a sacrifice to the scrap gods :lmao:

I remember reading about a guy a while back that blew a dump truck up with 100 lbs of tannerite. The explosion could be heard from several miles away. For comparison purposes, a half pound was enough to level that antique washing machine, so roughly 200 times that amount....:sick: Ok I found an old link here it is. Not quite as big as I remembered but still enough to land in some hot water http://forum.pafoa.org/general-2/14684-50bmg-100-lbs-tannerite-dumptruck-nuclear-plant-alert.html
