Using Ammonium Nitrate For Exploding Targets

When you think of exploding targets, what comes to mind? Are they those ones that pop up and make a great “boom” when hit with a bullet? If so, how do you use them? Are they an add-on that you throw into the fire or do they come with the wooden log and straws you need to complete your set-up? Doing all this in the backyard is a great way to spend time during these long winter months. It’s especially fun when it’s snowing and we can add some color to our target practice. Ammonium nitrate is also known as saltpeter and is used in many industrial applications. It’s not only used in explosives, but also in fertilizers, preservatives, and mining operations.
