""Each powder bag has about 4 pounds of black powder on the rear to act as a primer booster.""

I know this thread is about BIG guns but I found morter ammo/propellant was interesting. The stuff I saw was enclosed in what looked like what we used to call cellophane. It was about 4" square and 1/4" thick. Packets were added/removed for range. I saw a pile of the stuff(packets) ignited and it was FLAMMABLE for sure, gone in seconds.
Now big guns-the 106 recoiless rifle was a very interesting one..no recoil but dont ever stand behind one.
