I didn't think there were fuels or oxidizers in Smokeless powder?

Right, but for Nitrocellulose you have the nitration level (roughly the amount of NO2) which is not the same for every NC, so its formula is not that fixed.

Ahh, thank you. I hadn't realized that there were different grades of NC; I had thought it was like NG / RDX etc which are more like a fixed substance.
