    The fact that this is even a topic is just a tad bit concerning.

    It just goes to show that the average common folk know nothing about guns anymore. People don’t die when ammo goes off outside of a barrel and breech. SMH

    I will more than happily recycle any ammo someone deems surplus.

    I dunno, the way I've seen some people store ammo, I wouldn't trust it.

    I break it down and reuse the brass and the bullets for plinking stuff. I've got quite the stash from range pick up.

    Unless they're unknown reloads or have been in a flood or some similar catastrophe... I wouldn't worry as long as the cases show no corrosion or physical damage.

    I dare say most rounds will outlive their owners by far.

    That's not exactly the story they told us.
    The story went more like ; We have a hundred sorters at the recycle center and a lot are felons we don't want getting ahold of guns and ammo.

    The fact some news station reported it now has made it fact in a couple generations minds.
