BUt on the serious
subject of the smell of burnt powder...I like the smell of Wolf rimfire ammo. It has a sweet smell.
I've noticed that some of my smokeless rifle powders yield a faint odor of ammonia (which I really don't care for at all), but I have to admit my sniffer is somewhat out of whack a good part of the time. I smell and taste stuff in a way most people can't understand. Cooked blueberry often tastes like the odor of peat moss to me and I like skunky beer. I even kinda like the smell of skunk when it's just a faint odor. I like the smell of burnt matches too. I know that's probably pretty weird, but I never claimed to be normal...then again maybe I AM normal and everyone else is weird. Yeeaaahhhhh---that's the ticket!
