Yep I did a taste test but having never tasted either I devised a really clever test. Mixed what I believed was nitrate 7:3 with dark Al. Put in a tubed fused and sealed and lit it. No boom just spewed out and sputtered. Had it been perc I suspect there would have been some sound involved. Of course I diapered and treated as if it were perc. I wish I had got more it is the finest lump free nitrate. Totally milled it comes in handy at times when you don't want to mill nitrate.
My next task is to dry and mill strontium nitrate- it's like gravel almost. Seems to be hydroscopic.
