View Full Version : Gunpowder Ignition

Is there any possibility of the gunpowder ignition other then hitting the primer by the weapon like:

Hot condition/temperature where the bullet is kept
primer strikes by wood etc
Throwing/dropping the bullet on the floor or metal etc

Gun powder is extremely flammable, i once put some .32 and 7mm bullet powder near fire, it catches fire in less than a second.

If you were to drop (more like throw) the bullet in a way that some sharp concentrated object hit the primer just right, it could discharge. But it’s not easy to do .
And if it did discharge, it wouldn’t be that dangerous. More like a firecracker since the explosion isn’t compressed (gun barrel), and there is nothing (gun barrel) channeling the bullet with the (highly compressed) explosion behind it. All of the force would expand outwards 360, dissipating extremely fast in an exponential fashion.

Thank you Faisji for your valuable input on the topic.You have blown the myth.I am always afraid of bullets accidently blowing whenever i handle them its something psychological :)

Very informative. But I wouldn't suggest experimenting with bullet like this
