Regarding Binary Exploding Targets:
TANNERITE® is a binary explosive used primarily as a target for firearms practice, and is unique in that it is exceptionally stable when subjected to less severe forces such as a hammer blow or being dropped. It is supplied as two powders which are combined to produce the exploding target. Tannerite® is a registered trademark name, and binary exploding targets are a patented invention. Tannerite® Sports LLC recommends using 1/2 pound charges (0.23 kg), which should detonate when shot by a high-powered rifle. For small caliber rim-fire or slow moving pistol ammunition, which will not detonate Tannerite®, we offer specially formulated targets.
Tannerite® is used by shooting clubs to provide exploding targets for their participants in large-scale shooting events, tactical teams, fire authorities, as well as members of the general public who wish to have a shot indicator for long range shooting. Tannerite® detonations occur at a very high velocity, producing a large explosion and cloud of water vapor. It may be useful for persons who are firing at long ranges; in this scenario, a long-range rifle shooter em-places targets, retreats to their firing position, and fires. The Tannerite® will detonate and serve as an indicator that the shooter has hit the target.
Since the two components are not explosive until mixed, they can legally be purchased and used in the USA without any kind of license. However by mixing the Tannerite® Brand Binary Target, you become the manufacturer of an exploding target, and assume any/all liabilities. Storage of mixed Tannerite® may fall under federal regulation unless stored in approved magazines.
