Freakman: It's artillery propellant, so it's not the stuff that makes the artillery round explode. It's the stuff that explodes inside the artillery tube to push the artillery round downrange. It burns fast and hot but doesn't create an explosion in the traditional sense. If this stuff went off, it would cause a huge, bright fire but not much else. Great for arson, not so great for blowing up Tru:Blood plants./artillery officer
Rich Cream: So purchasing wasn't informed that inventory had already been filled? Were they producing it but there was no place to send it? To keep the contract and employees going? It's a former ammunition plant being leased, so the explosives are left over from previous company? If the new company produces explosives also why wasn't that mentioned?
