Especially if it is old, and was not stored correctly, both of which I believe were the case here.

Something to understand about AN, it becomes more explosive stored improperly in a humid environment. The moisture adds to the explosive force. This is why the Takata airbags became dangerous. The airbag units rusted and the seals allowed moisture in. And AN is hydrophilic.

Sprinkling AN crystals on a hot steam pipe @ the refinery was something I'll never ever forget.

OMG to the power of 3
