Six Million Pounds of 'Guncotton'

Hmmm...maybe this should be in the reloading section....

Well pardon me for being incredibly naïve but I always figured a large company making ammunition (and I think 6 million pounds of propellant qualifies as ‘large’) would take reasonable care of the stuff until they shipped it out. I guess I thought they’d be inspected and checked out regularly.

This is just ridiculous.

I hope somebody is concerned about our military getting this stuff as well as the danger to the town where this company is located.
