    Dropped Live Ammo Can Detonate

    SAFETY WARNING: This is an INGO safety warning. All members should be ready to attack Kirk Freeman for bringing such knowledge to the table.

    Live ammunition can detonate. While the probability is tiny, it is a quirk that can happen. Be advised.

    Does that count as an ND?

    And, in the spirit of safety warnings, a .22lr round will detonate if you use it to replace a fuse in your car. Everybody's heard a similar story, I took an injured person report from exactly that. It was originally broadcast as a man shot. Small piece of brass stuck in the genius's shin.

    Another reason to not like .40 S&W.

    Good thing it wasn't .45 or everyone in the store would've had their souls trapped in a horcrux.

    Dang it! Now that this has gone viral, the manufacturer's lawyers will have them stop offering economy priced bulk boxes of loose ammo

    Thanks T.Lex, I had to google 'horcrux'. I have been enlightened!

    The case reads 'Federal' but that box looks like WWB... Now I'm confused... Dang .40!

    Kind of makes you wonder what would happen if one of those thousand round cases was to be dropped, say, a story or two. Seems to me like as much as these get thrown around during shipping we would hear a lot more about it happening so I would call the chance of this happening infinitesimally small.

    Sounds like it was just a handful of mixed rounds in a leftover box. From the article: "the customer had several loose rounds of ammo inside the factory ammo box, however, it was not a new factory box and there was no plastic sleeve inside the box."

    I've always wondered if something like this could start a chain reaction of sorts, and set off other rounds in the same box. Apparently not.
