Watermelon Explosion!

Just a short video of the grand children witnessing what happens when you place 1 lb of Tannerite inside a watermelon and explode it. Nothing captures childrens’ imagination more than the prospect of seeing something explode… well, except for that thing actually exploding!

Tannerite is a legal substance (in Canada) you can buy. You have to mix two parts together and shoot it with a high velocity bullet in order for it to explode. The instructions that come with Tannerite say the bullet must be traveling at over 2,000 feet per second, but I have found it can be detonated with a bullet at 1,600 if it is a large, heavy bullet.
