Over the weekend, we posted a video SAAMI made to educate firefighters, showing them the sort of abuse modern centerfire ammunition could take in various scenarios, so that firefighters would know that they wouldn’t need to be concerned about being shot if fighting a structure fire where even large amounts of loaded ammunition was present.

This? This is just the intersection of stupidity and curiosity, though it also shows the same basic truth that a detonating cartridge isn’t a tremendous threat unless it is enclosed and the force of burning powder can be directed.
