You can get a pretty good one for free from Detonation Films. I listed the page below, its in the middle of the page and its named Nuke01.

Thanks but i was wondoring if there was anything that looked like the nukes on this site http://www.finallight.com/orders/_ABT1.ASP . I want something that could be from an angle other than the side. It doesnt have to be a nuke, but i would like a huge mushrooming explosion.

To help us out, tell us what angle you're looking for. Those nukes on that site you posted are really cool and not that expensive. I dont think you're gonna find anything as good or better then nukes on that site that are for free.

I dont mind paying as much as 25 dollars. This is for a very low budget film. I would like a medium to high angle shot. I dont need the shock wave or anything.

Have you tried searching for Public Domain footage in the US? A lot of government type organisations in the US make footage available for free (NASA, etc) and Im sure some of the nuclear propaganda movies of the fifties are out there. You might get something useful but be prepared to spend a while digging through the archives online.
