Explosive Gun Targets

Gun targets that are explosive are constructed and sold primarily for making exploding targets for firearms practice.

Typically made from the combination of ammonium nitrate (an oxidizer) and aluminum powder (a fuel) that is supplied as two separate powders that are mixed and shaken to produce an explosive. The combination is relatively stable when subjected to forces less severe than a high-velocity bullet impact, such as a hammer blow, being dropped, or impact from a low-velocity bullet or shotgun blast.

Exploding gun targets are not flammable, because the explosion cannot be created by a burning fuse or electricity.
Because the targets are sold as two separate powders, it can be transported and sold in many places without the legal restrictions that would otherwise apply to explosives.
