              Can confirm shit like that happens
              there is an explosives factory near where i live, they dont use c4, but some weird priming compounds, goes boom anyway
              many people work there
              and the security used to be shit as was typical for communist country (CZ), so smuggled explosives were pretty common around here
              factory belongs to Austin Detonator now
              friends dad used to use the stuff he stole for fishing and hunters shot in in forrest for fun, just fun times basically
              and some dude stole so much of it over the years, close to 5 kilos of very very explosive priming compound and also some finished primers
              one day he got drunk and really mad at his wife, he started drilling holes around the base of their house shouting he will blow it all up
              Cops stopped him while he was stuffing the explosive into the holes
              i could see the drilled holes for many years after since he went to jail, wife left, explosives got covertly missing and nobody wanted to mess with a house like that
              i love living here

            Saltpetre (one of the components of blackpowder) makes you feel horribly sick for a few days, but makes you *look* sick for even longer. It's a minor plot point in Day of the Jackal. But back in the day, it was one of the methods available for malingerers. Also, consuming saltpetre stops you from having erections which is why British boarding schools sometimes slipped it into the students' food. Otherwise, with a captive population of hundreds of teenaged boys and no women, there was a risk of things turning a little... prison-y.

        The sweet part makes sense, chemically. The "gets you stoned" part sounds like nonsense, there's no chemical reason why it would do that. Though it absolutely would make you sick.

      Some types of smokeless powder (such as cordite) actually consist of long, extruded sticks. The first smokeless propellant (picrel), was called Poudre B (B for blanc, i.e. white, to contrast it with blackpowder) was made by passing the material through a pair of rollers until it was a thin, flat sheet which was then cut up like confetti. There's also some types of smokeless powder that are shaped like teeny, tiny river rocks. But other smokeless powders are granular like you'd expect. Chemistry is kinda neat.

      It's not all that stable, and it lacks the ability to better control the burn rate that modern powders have.

          No.
          You need fuming nitric acid, and im meuriatic sulfuric acid, i cant remeber which for the nitration, to make the nitrocellulose and nitroglycerin, and you need full on petroleum production for the petroleum jelly in cordite.
          Could you moron rig it and produce some of quational quality if certain chemicals were lying around, sure, but you aren't producing it from scratch.

            Yes. Making nitric acid, sulfuric acid and a required solvent is not particularly difficult. What would be difficult is making a consistent product that also has a long life span but underloading rounds and regular shooting solves that problem.

            Fuming nitric acid can be produced from electricity and air, admittedly inefficiently. It can be concentrated with distillation. Someone else had mentioned the sulfuric acid part, but this needed to catalyze the nitration and can be reused with minimal loss. A small amount could be obtained from any lab or enough car batteries for this purpose. The hardest part is the cellulose and fine extrusion needed. You would want something washed and cleaned cotton fibers, but of consistent fiber size. The forbidden spaghetti also needs to be extruded consistently with correct mixtures of petroleum (or natural grease, another consistency variable though) jelly.

                Nitric acid: nitrates or ammonia.
                Sulfuric acid: Doesn't get used up in the process, so any starting amount is adequate and will last forever. Sulfur and sulfuric acid itself is plentiful. Even if a community somehow lacked for this, trade is a thing, even neolithic people traded goods thousands of miles.
                Cellulose: lmao
                I bet you looked up the processes for making things on wikipedia, read the industrial processes without any understanding and concluded that it can only be done this way.

                The simplest process would probably just involve purifying sulfuric acid from an acidic volcanic spring, many of which have naturally high concentrations of sulfuric acid. The second simplest would involve burning any number of sulfur-containing minerals and bubbling the gas through water, which is the procedure used historically to produce it when the chemical industry consisted entirely of burning rocks, plants, and animals in a retort. Most production processes can also use platinum as a catalyst. Vanadium oxide is preferred because Platinum can be gradually leached when producing concentrated H2SO4 at scale. Platinum can be easily obtained in the quantities necessary for catalysis, if only from scavenging the catalytic converters from rusted out automobiles.

                I'd recommend at least digging through 2-3 wikipedia articles before you pretend to be a chemist.

                I'll also add, that if you go 4 articles deep before you pretend to be a chemist (like I did) you'll find out that they've been producing sulfuric acid in industrial quantities since the 1700's, where they used what was called the "lead chamber process," which involved no exotic catalysts at all.

    I found a round when I was younger in a pond that had drained because the dam had gone kaput.
    I believe it was a 30.06 and it had that stick powder inside it and it was dry after having been under the water for who knows how long.
    This was on an island also and nothing there was larger than small game to hunt so it must have made its way into the pond by being thrown away.
    But the stick powder was neat and was like quick fuse cable.
