The powder grains can be in the shape of cylinders, tubes, flakes, discs, or more-perforated cylinders.
Many of those powders have final surface treatment which has better burning characteristics. Single base powders are used in munitions and ammunition for pistols and rifles, mortars, canons, howitzers, and for other special uses in various branches of industry.
