just FYI, SNM (Special Nuclear Material) is plutonium, and a few other elements. Basically it is the fissionables that are needed/used to make a nuclear weapon (and the matrial containing them, such as irradiated fuel rods). Note that ordinary uranium is not listed in the same category.

SNM is much less panic inducing language in official documents that can be/eventually are released to the public than the "p word" (plutonium)
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
