    was the fire a recent story, must be a heated garage, i wouldn't store my ammo in an iowa garage as cold and hot as it gets thru the year. nice stable room temp with silica pouches surrounding it for this guy :)

    Yep, ammo will explode in a fire, seen it first hand. During a house fire we were called out to, it was pretty obvious what corner of the house he had all his guns and ammunition in. Now it won't go shooting around and cause people to dodge bullets though.

    nothing like storing your ammo in sub zero weather in the winter and 90+ humidity during the summer

    In a house fire? Why wouldn't it? I've detonated rounds outside a firearm before and they explode like a little bomb.

    The rounds blow up like a fire cracker. There is no barrel to contain the gases and shoot the bullet.

    in mythbusters they heated up a conventional oven to set off ammo, and then tested throwing ammo in a fire the only thing that did any damage was 50 BMG and even then you had to be within a couple of the feet for the casing to hit you.
