To develop a gun propellant composition with high insensitivity and high energy, we formulated a composition by adding RDX into the nitrocellulose(NC) based propellant. The flame temperature of the RDX added NC(RAN) propellant was higher than that of neat NC propellant. The kinetic muzzle energy of RAN propellant was close to that of JA2 propellant at room temperature($21^{circ}C$). The difference of kinetic muzzle energy of RAN propellant between high and room temperature settings as well as between a low and room temperature settings were less compared to those of JA2 propellant.
Key Words: Gun Propellant, Propellant Composition, RDX, Nitrocellulose
