We describe the mechanisms which govern the bullet impact reactivity of strongly confined castable plastic bonded high explosives. We point out the parameters which drive the reaction. This is a deflagration to detonation transition, in the studied cases. We succeed in elaborating a first practical model, able to forecast the explosive behavior of castable plastic bonded high explosives based on the fragmentability of the explosive material and strongly confined.
