In talking with several other reloaders, we have tried to figure out what would cause such a massive explosion with no fire .

He was working with something, but it sure as hell wasn't smokeless powder! Unless he had Win 296 or another fast burning powder in a closed container. I'm gonna guess maybe he was loading black powder rounds or messing with other volatile chemicals. I'm sure the arson people will figure it out with residue traces all over the place.

Newspapers get all kinds of things wrong. I doubt that explosion was from reloading smokeless powder from a factory container.

Smokeless powder burns when not constrained. Where a few pounds of BP could have done that amount of damage.

Yeah, if I had to guess, it would involve a large quantity of blackpowder, not smokeless

It is hard to imagine that was caused by smokeless powder.

It looks like a natural gas explosion to me. He might have had a gas leak and didn’t smell it because of all the chemicals he had out.

I’m in the gas leak/explosion boat too.....no way did smokeless powders cause that damage. I’ve been to several gas explosions in my career and that type of damage is consistent with what I’ve seen.

Seems unrealistic. Unless he dropped the powder into a fan and had dust floating everywhere then caused a spark.

could improperly stored primers play a role? I guess it would take a lot of primers in a tight container to do this....

They won't go off by themselves. It takes a hard blow or a flame or something along those lines to get them to go off.

If that was from 6 pounds of smokeless powder then the government is wasting too much money on munitions. Even with high explosives (primers), I doubt you'll get that affect with the quantities people normally have. Plus, components are usually not contained. That is not from reloading supplies, something else was involved.

Only way 6 lbs of powder would do that is if the pressure were contained. Even then, that’s a lot more damage than I’d expect.

I'm surprised the narrative isn't "Right-wing gun nut blows hisself up making a bomb."

How did the feds & press let that one go by?

I don't think of W296 (H110) as a fast-burning powder--it's about the slowest burning powder for handguns. I guess if you are accustomed to rifle ammo it would be pretty fast (H110 was created for the .30 Carbine round).

I don't think it is possible for smokeless powder (any kind) to do that kind of damage unless it had been deliberately confined and set off--not a normal practice during reloading. Something else was involved.

I don't know how the guy survived being that close to an explosion that powerful. Something seems off.
