    If you don't have a C&R FFL, you really need to consider getting one------it's a license to spend money, though.

    Great news. I was wondering if they use BP in any current military munitions today.

    You can bet on it if Defense Department Invests in it.

    I don't know what they use it for though.

    Naval Guns use it. The grains are 1/2 hollow tubes about an inch long.

    I agree. When the government gets it's hands in something they tend to dictate how it will be run. They will now have the authority to shut down civilian sales to keep those "radical" parents from blowing up a school board meeting. (snark)

    At least "this guberment" is finally investing in an American factory.

    IIRC it was used in expulsion charges for base ejection artillery rounds. Whether this is still true I have no idea, been out of the ammo business too long.
