Is real BP more useful in bomb-making than smokeless or something? Or is it just a concern over user safety? Just seems odd that there would be different standards.
Smokeless is a propellant it would make a crappy bomb, if it would even make one. Black is an explosive it would make a very good bomb but Tim McVeigh pretty much proved you can make a bigger and better one cheaper with fertilizer and diesel fuel.
