Looks like these folks in Louisiana have 6 million pounds of it just lying around out by the back door.

Reports yesterday were that it was black powder. I don't know which is correct.

M6 is a progressive propellant used in 155mm artillery shells.

The place was supposedly in the business of demilling the powder and converting it to commercial explosives.

M6 is a progressive propellant used in 155mm various artillery and mortar shells. FIFY.

The other two common types are M1 and M10.
