Is the Range Bomb the same thing as Tannerite?
No!! Tannerite is a binary explosive that produces a real, loud explosion when detonated by a bullet. Tannerite is cool and lots of fun, but it is expensive and not exactly something that most parents would trust their teenage kids to use unsupervised. Range Bombs simulate an explosion by releasing a cloud of white powder when hit squarely by a bullet. Unlike Tannerite, there is no noise (other than the report of your firearm) nor is there any flying debris with Range Bombs. Tannerite really explodes, Range Bombs look like they do.

Do I take the powder out of the Range Bomb?
No! The Range Bomb is a fully functional target only. The powder should not be released from the poly bag other than by a bullet fired from a gun.

A Range Bomb is just a bag of flour, right?
No! The Range Bomb is filled with a custom milled industrial mineral called calcium sulphate. Custom milling of this common mineral yields very fine particles with optimal distribution of size to produce the kind of powder cloud that makes the Range Bomb an excellent reactive target. The Range Bomb's custom milled powder is denser than flour which gives it greater resistence to the bullet, thus absorbing more of the bullet's energy than a less dense material.

What happens to Range Bomb powder once it falls to the ground?
Calcium sulphate is mined from the earth so it just goes back where it came from. It's an environmentally
friendly, non-toxic mineral that some farmers use to regulate the pH in their soil. It's a "cousin" of calcium
carbonate which is known as limestone, a common road surfacing material.

How long does the Range Bomb last when shot with various calibers?
One of the great features of the Range Bomb is it takes multiple hits compared to other breakable or explosive reactive targets. Like any reactive target, where it is hit and what caliber bullet is used will have an effect on performance. Extensive testing by the Range Bomb's inventor suggests a very conservative estimate for shooters using .223 ammo is five good hits. Again, a very conservative estimate for .22LR shooters is 10 shots. Shooters are advised to spread their pattern to hit all the powder. It is not recommended to shoot a Range Bomb with a shot shell.

Does the Range Bomb come in other sizes and/or colors?
Not yet, but larger size Range Bombs are in the development pipeline. Adding color to the powder is also
under consideration too.

How much does the Range Bomb cost?
It is anticipated that the Range Bomb will be retail priced at one dollar each and less than four dollars for
four-packs.
