Ammo Disposal...




Anyone know of a safe way to dispose of bad ammo? I had some trouble with my feed ramp. Now I need to get rid of 30 bad rounds.

Break them down. Bullet puller, pull the powder and if necessary, stick the case in a gun and detonate the primer. Be careful with the last step just and treat the gun if you were firing a normal round. Eyes, ears, muzzle downrange and in safe direction. If you don't have a bullet puller, find someone who is into reloading.

Buy a impact bullet puller from your preferred component supplier and bang those bad boys apart. You can reuse the components while managing some frustration. http://www.midwayusa.com/product/215...-bullet-puller

I usually tossed mine into the corner of the range near the backstop. They usually get taken care of safely. I have not had to get rid of any more rounds this way...

You can use a bullet puller as suggested above or you can place the ammo in some penetrating oil for a few days...that will make all of the components junk. Then you can just toss them in the trash. The bullet puller is the better way...but just giving you another option.

One option that has not been mentioned is to contact your local police of sheriff’s department; they will gladly meet with you and dispose of the ammunition safely. I have had to do this many times when ammunition to turned into me where I work. The officer shows up collects the ammo and leaves. Easy, safe and free of charge.
