Like popcorn only deadly.
Nah....my house will be much worse than that...especially when you toss in my reloading supplies
Mmm, needs butter and salt.
Wow! I want one of those for next Independence Day! I'll be the coolest (and most feared) but in the neighborhood.
Gotta go... I've got a sudden urge for popcorn.
That had to be more than 2000???
Mine would look like Beirut. .....
Not really. without a chamber and a barrel there is nothing to keep the pressure around the lead. It is quite a show buy reasonable safe.
We used to pile up our corroded ammo at the end of a rainy op in Vietnam and set fire to it. Some idiot threw a corroded hand grenade in the pile. Luckily nobody was near it when it cooked off.
If my house catches fire (and I'm in a Ca fire zone) don't run, drive the hell out to a safe radius,
It would be like the Chinese explosions recently. Only -- bigger...
Just kinda loud and will scare the piss out of you if you aren't expecting it. Just back up a little a give it some room. Bigger danger is a weapon with a round chambered, semi-auto even worse. I have read articles about semi-autos heating up in a fire and cycling until empty.
Had shelf full of aerosol cans a couple feet away get my attention before too. Propane bottles and stuff like that worry me more than ammo. Most of the fires I have been to with ammo cooking off, the house was too far gone to be inside anyway (not saying that this is always the case, just my experiences). Now, that doesn't mean I will poke though a pile of ammo with a pike pole. But it is not at the top of my list of concerns, plenty of other stuff higher up.
Like the car(s) parked in the garage?
Actually, not much to worry about.
The loaded guns is our worry, pulled up to a heavily involved house once and it sounded like a war zone. Once we got it out we found a large gun safe with many holes in the top of it where loaded guns went off. As the FF above mentioned, if it's that hot we probably won't be in it anyway. I have been in a few where loose shotgun shells went off in the main fire room, scares you for a second.
The show wouldn't start until the fire hits my claymores and grenades.
Read an article years ago about a firefighter who was killed responding to a vehicle fire in Texas. The owner had a bolt action 30.06 in his truck with a round chambered that cooked off. Be careful!
other than the immediate explosion possibly resulting in shrapnel? it wouldnt do much as there isnt any pressure to really send stuff flying its the pressure of the charge going down the barrel behind a bullet that makes it deadly..without the barrel its just im assuming firecracker like.
