March QOTM

Postby Ohio3Wheels » 04 Mar 2019 14

Gun powder, specifically smokeless. Smokeless is either single base or double base and the major differences are percentage nitroglycerin and additives in the case of double and additives in the case of single along with shape. So the question is - why do some powders cost so much more than others?

Occurred to me today when I picked up a canister of Varget and it was by far thee most expensive powder on the shelves.
