Powder, except black powder, is a flammable solid, not an explosive; HOWEVER, if that solid ignites in a sealed container, there is no where for the pressure to go, thus it becomes a bomb - just like your loaded ammo. The weak spot is the bullet sitting in the case with the barrel - the forces move everything in that direction. Drop that same round in a campfire and it will sizzle and pop
