How to Create an ANNM Detonator?

You will need ammonium nitrate (NH4NO3) and nitromethane (CH3NO2). Optional are metal dusts (Al, Mg, Zn, Si) and methanol (CH3OH). For the improvised blasting cap you’ll need acetoneperoxide or HMTD – other primary explosive will work, too. Because of the ease of acetoneperoxide production, it’ll be used in this project.

This document has several associated images that would aid the reader with an explicit understanding to build an ANNM Detonator.
