A.S.A, I think Ka-Khan has raised a valid question regarding proper disposal of spend rounds. Read some where that these could cause environmental hazard and could contaminate under ground water reserves if dumped along with regular solid waste. I think we must come up with better solution than just dumping them like regular waste. A.H

In my opinion, the best way is to burry them or dump them in running or steady water.

bullets also contain lead which causes mental problems and metal toxic poisoning. Why dont you hold on to them or throw them where they dispose off used motor oil (which is already toxic.) Make sure you take them apart before hand..

Consult a specialist before trying the following:


1- Find a bullet puller: Inertia/Kinetic bullet puller (cheap) or Cam Lock Bullet Puller. IMO Cam lock is better.

2- Use it to pull the bullets from the case/shell. (nothing is harmed)

3- Throw the powder in the toilet. It can also be burned because it doesn't explode without pressure but I wouldn't recommend that.

4- Sell/Keep the cases/shells for reloading.

5- If you don't wanna reload or get 'em reloaded, soak them in WD-40 (the primer) then wash them with water. Now its junk.


The above is based on my understanding of things, which can be very wrong. I'd like to be corrected wherever wrong.

Nice input in the thread.My idea was to brain storm you all on this important issue.
The question is the same for Live bullets !If someone has very old or un reliable bullets here i remember some pics by one of our members who has local bullets which 'green' toppings on them. :)

i had a SG cartridge of Starfish's rammy...first ever misfire by her, as the primer was worn off and rusty...first i thought to keep it as a souvenir, but that was unsafe in my opinion so i took out all the grains, flushed em..and threw the emptied open cartridge in the bin:p
but in case of bullets that could not be done...gutter is feasible :)

wow i never people were so worried about disposing of bullets , give em to me , i empty out the propellant and make a big firecracker and keep the shells as souveniers , not much of headache , just thump the shell off and jerk the stuff out , Happy day no big deal, to those who dont want to do that , well i dunno , i dont think bullets can be dangerous if theyr just lying around , and even if the go off theys not dangerous enoguh to kill you , not pistol bullets anyway , they just make you bleed really bad , trust me iv done all the crazy stuff that can possibly happen to a bullet , it just dosnt go off unless something pops the cap behind it or due to exposure to heat , so theres no problem keeping em , just leave the bullet dipped in water for a period of time thatl probably kill it ,

There is no way to dispose them The better way is to throw them in the gutter.

I have my reservations regarding throwing of bullets in gutter which will not only choke the gutters & may pollute the environment.

i will ask my father ASAP. he is an environmental engineer!!! till my knowledge it is not safe to dispose off lead rounds into gutter or streams because it may cause lead poising in marine life which may get concentrated as we move up the food chain and finally into human-beings.. WE SHOULD ALL BE RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS!!!! where as metal jacket can be sold to raddi-walla, another use we can make of lead bullets is making air gun pellets by melting and filling it in dyes.


Plz tell me the contents of the chemicals and metals usually found in a bullet.. ASAP so i can ask my dad.

selling is a good idea

SalmanHusain
24-06-2010, 05:26 PM
but what about the legality of selling rounds to a raddi wala?? how about excangeing it with a dealer for live rounds????

noumanzaidi
24-06-2010, 05:31 PM
@salmanhusain

SalmanHusain
24-06-2010, 05:44 PM
dont know never ever onwed a gun before!!!! well some and espacially in peshawar/darra refill the ammo. they might exchange for some amount of money!!! but this would lead to fake bulltes

noumanzaidi
24-06-2010, 05:50 PM

SalmanHusain
24-06-2010, 05:57 PM

SalmanHusain

a few suggestions from internet search :-

Toss it in a bucket of water...dispose of later...

Give me a brake! If it didn't go off in the gun what gives you the idea that it will go off at all. Hang fire now thats a different story. You need to find out why. A hang fire also you need to know why,they can be dangerous

Spent and misfired shotgun cartridge disposal
Advice on disposal of domestic and commercial quantities of spent shotgun cartridges and misfired shotgun cartridges.
What sort of waste are spent shotgun cartridges?
According to guidance from the Environment Agency (EA), spent shotgun cartridges are classed as a ‘Directive Waste’. The phrase “Directive Waste” refers to European legislation called the Waste Framework Directive. Directive wastes include nearly all household, commercial and industrial wastes. Directive wastes have to be assessed as to whether they are classed as ‘Hazardous Waste’ or ‘Non-hazardous Waste’ according to a set of criteria under the Waste Framework Directive. Even though spent shotgun cartridges contain lead (hazardous substance) residues, lead is not present in the quantities required for it to be classed as a ‘Hazardous Waste’. Spent shotgun cartridges are therefore classed as a ‘Non-hazardous’ waste and are subject to the regulations governing non-hazardous waste.

Domestic quantities:
Local authorities are responsible for the removal and management of domestic household waste. Based on guidance from the EA, small quantities of cartridges can be deposited in normal domestic household waste*. No official policy exists to define the limits of ‘small quantities’, however the EA suggests anything up to 100 cartridges is reasonable. Local authorities have a duty of care to remove non-hazardous, directive waste, which spent cartridges are. Any problems encountered by the removal of spent shotgun cartridges in your domestic waste needs to be addressed with the local authority responsible.

Commercial quantities:
Disposal of large quantities of spent shotgun cartridges are subject to the new agricultural waste regulations (further details on the EA website). Under these regulations disposal of large quantities of spent shotgun cartridges by burning or burial is illegal. The EA recommends contacting a local waste recycling company to arrange removal.

Duty of care in relation to commercial quantities of cartridges
Duty of care applies to everyone handling trade waste, which includes commercial shoots. If you break the duty you are liable to an unlimited fine.

Duty of care means that you have to take all reasonable steps to keep the waste safe. For example safe storage of spent cartridges might be in large bins or a skip. Duty of care also means that the waste must be properly disposed of. That means contacting a company authorised to dispose of it properly.

The easiest way to do this is by entering into a contract with the local authority to take the waste away. You can also give it to a registered waste carrier. A company called Solway Recycling offers services for collection of large quantities of spent shotgun cartridges throughout the country, for further information contact www.solwayrecycling.co.uk (http://www.solwayrecycling.co.uk) . It is the responsibility of the waste producer to check that Solway recycling is a registered waste carrier.

In addition waste producers need to sign a waste transfer notice, saying what the waste is and how it is stored.

Disposal of live/misfired shotgun cartridges:
Contact your local police firearms licensing authority who can collect live or misfired cartridges and dispose of them. The Health and Safety Executive also provides guidance on disposal of large quantities of live or misfired ammunition. DO NOT dispose of live or misfired cartridges through domestic waste, burial or burning - it is illegal and dangerous.

* No guidance has been issued by the Department of Environment Northern Ireland for disposal of domestic quantities of spent cartridges.

NB BASC does not accept responsibility for any misinterpretation of guidance. It is the responsibility of members to familiarise themselves with the regulations for each of the countries in the UK. For further information on waste regulations contact the Environment Agency (England and Wales), Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Scotland) or Department of Environment (Northern Ireland). BASC does not accept responsibility for the guidance given or services provided by any organisation listed in this document.
