- Does smokeless powder need oxygen?
Oxygen from the air is not necessary for the combustion of smokeless powders since they contain sufficient built-in oxygen to burn completely, even in an enclosed space such as the chamber of a firearm. In effect, ignition occurs when the powder granules are heated above their ignition temperature. (hodgdon powder is the technologies of spherical powders and extruded propellants ).
