Flash Suppressors?

Major Gunpowder manufactures almost NEVER disclose the formula or composition of the powders they manufacture. However some manufactures do admit to using a flash suppressant in their formula. The chemical used I think is an alkali salt eg KCl. Commercial manufactures will disclose that an addittive to suppress muzzle flash has been added, eg Buffalobore Ammo.
IMHO you should NEVER add anything to a commercial blended smokeless powder, TK.
