    Calcium ammonium nitrate -> ammonium nitrate

    So a little back info first so you don't think I'm the next OKC bomber- if you love guns and target shooting as much as I do then you know what Tannerite is. For those that don't, it's a binary explosive that explodes when shot. You can buy the name brand tannerite at Cabelas but it costs a ton...
