FAQ On Smokeless Powder
- Is smokeless powder safe?
Smokeless Powders: Don’t use modern-day smokeless powders in a muzzleloading firearm unless the firearm is designed specifically for its use. Smokeless powders create extremely high pressures and can cause serious injury. Always follow the manufacturers’ recommendations for the powder and your firearm.
- Is smokeless powder better?
There are several advantages of smokeless powder over black powder. First, smokeless powder is about three times as powerful as black powder, which extends its range and allows for small caliber ammo. As a result, a soldier can carry more rounds and does not need to worry much about smoke giving his position away.
- What are the two types of smokeless powder?
There are two basic types of modern smokeless gunpowder: single and double base. Single-base smokeless powder is made from nitrocellulose. Double-base smokeless powder is a combination of nitrocellulose and also nitroglycerin.
- How long will smokeless gunpowder last?
When properly stored, an unopened container of smokeless powder has an indefinite shelf life, but once it is opened, the stabilizers it contains begin to slowly but surely weaken. Even then it can still last for a very long time.
- 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.
