The two-part high explosive mixture tannerite has been popular with shooters for a few years now. The reason it gets so much attention is that the mix is relatively stable, consisting of ammonium nitrate and aluminum powders that are combined before use. Once mixed, the explosive mixture won’t ignite even when burned, although it explodes dramatically when shot with a high-powered rifle.
These YouTube videos all feature shooters with a ton of tannerite, plenty of scrap metal, and epic amounts of destruction. From appliances and cars to houses and even Elmo, you won’t believe what people are blowing up in these 7 epic tannerite explosions.

It’s helped along by 3 gallons of gasoline, which is what caused the huge fireball when the round hit its target. We think there’s a pretty good chance that unclebrady won’t be asked to babysit anytime soon. [/expand]
