its probably a stupid question that im gonna sound stupid asking..but..ill go for it anyway.

k. so for my job, i work at a military training base picking up brass riffle and pistol shells. every now and then you'll find a live round or full amunition, right? when you're working in one hundred degree weather..could this be dangerous? i mean..couldnt the heat trigger like the bottom of the round and cause it to go off? thats just what i heard. now me, knowing nothing about guns whatsoever, could be completely wrong. but thats why im asking. so tell me how big of a risk is this. and try to do so without making any references to e-secks or icy hot. much love.

Meh.

I don't think so. Not 100 degree heat, anyway.

If they were sitting upright on metal or something, maybe. But it should be okay.

I would still be careful, though.

Haven't you seen Shaun of the Dead?

Shotgun Shells+Fire=instant death

In other words, if it's hot enough, it can go off.

Gunpowder's flash point is pretty high - you'd probably be dead before the round went off because of pure heat.

They weren't shotgun shells. There wasn't even a shotgun in the pub.

It was a Wincester rifle. They were rifle shells.

Get it right.

That kind of heat isnt a problem, but all the flames in this thread might give off enough heat.....

In a gun, the hammer goes forward, and the firing pin at the end of the hammer hits the percussion cap (that little round thing at the bottom). The percussion cap causes a burst that ignites the gun powder, causing a large explosion, causing the bullet to be propelled forward.

Also, me and my friend used to put shotgun shells in clamps facing the ground, and hit them with a hammer with a nail attatched to the end. It takes alot of force on the cap to set it off as well.

You will occasionally find a live round that jammed and was ejected. And this round might be cooked off. However, without the chamber and barrel to compress the gas to propel the bullet forward, your not going to get shot. It'l go pop, the bullet will be pushed out, and if your actually holding it, you'd likely get burned. No penetration.

Unless it's rimfire. But I don't think the military of wherever your from shoots cheap 22 bullets.

Even if the round went off, which pretty much won't happen unless your really trying to set it off, the bullet probably wouldn't kill you it will just be like a slightly more powerful blackcat type firework.

Truth. With no chamber to compress the gas, no high speed bullet. For sure its gonna burn you and propell the bullet a little ways, but hardly enough to actually hurt anything. Think of it like a very heavy airsoft pellet. It'l sting, but its not gonna kill you dude.

In fact, becasue it's not contained in a chamber causing the high pressure to propel the bullet forward, the actual case (the shiny brass thing) becomes the projectile because it weighs less than the actual bullet. They don't do much and it probably wouldn't hurt you too bad. It might break the skin.

As far as tossing one in a fire, the bullet will melt faster than the powder will ignite so you have no pressure there either.

ya ug has it all wrong except for moomoocons a pin will strike the cap and, under pressure, that charge will ignite the gunpowder. But gunpowder doesnt explode it burns at a very fast rate snd that built up pressure finds an exit wich is the bullet. it propells the bullet with the rest of the gas down the barrel and the more the barrel the longer the range and speed of the bullet. so unless you have some kinda tuff ass tube and a way to strike it and keep the pressure inside the tube no worries. the only heat hot enough to set off the gunpowder would have to melt the metal first and then there wouldnt be a bullet so its a catch 22 kinda thing.
