    5:46 Things have gone horribly wrong on your incident if you see a firefighter pull out his sniper rifle.

    Please share this video and others like it.

    Hated to see the ammunition waste, yet I know tests are needed for safety.

    This needs to be shared, especially in the year 2022 of the Armolite Rifle grabbers!

    It seems to me fire is worse than ammunition/bullets!

    What are the statistics of fires either unintentional or INTENTIONAL compared to handgun/Rifle deaths. Unintentional or INTENTIONAL❗️❓️❗️❓️

  3. Matt H on January 25, 2023 at 1:24 am

    Great safety profile, but all that ammo 😢

  4. Moe Mentum on January 25, 2023 at 1:25 am

    Very through evaluation, but I would have loved to see some tests with ammunition stored in military ammunition cans. Does the sealed canister make a difference when exposed to heat (fire)?

  5. Josh Batchelor on January 25, 2023 at 1:25 am

    How can I hear Rich Evans laughing in the background?

  6. FlatRangeOperator on January 25, 2023 at 1:26 am

    What’s that music

  7. Ray Maddalone on January 25, 2023 at 1:28 am

    Excellent test and something that should be shown to the people who preach about the dangers of ammunition. Facts matter.
    Also very disturbing seeing all that ammo go up in smoke given today’s shortages!

  8. Bob on January 25, 2023 at 1:34 am

    Wow that sheet rock got torn up, just think if that were bare skin would be like hamburger.

  9. Darwin Allen on January 25, 2023 at 1:35 am

    This is awesome. My girlfriend is worried my ammo cans are going to blow the roof off my place if they get too hot. I have to admit, I never thought it’d all be THIS stable. Ammo gone to a good cause and super educational. Thanks for posting these results!

  10. Joe Cary on January 25, 2023 at 1:36 am

    400,000 rounds? That probably averages out to $300,000!

  11. AK-48 on January 25, 2023 at 1:39 am

    Back yard beekeeper take notes.

  12. Mukesh mpl Channel on January 25, 2023 at 1:39 am

    Very very nice

  13. M Mullen on January 25, 2023 at 1:40 am

    I would have liked to see the testing designed and performed by a party without a vested interest. And why didn’t they test any steel cased ammo? An unforgivable (but not too surprising) omission considering how much money they spent on ammo. I suspect it would behave somewhat differently from the soft brass casings.

  14. Lumpytusk on January 25, 2023 at 1:40 am

    "It was decided to put the ammunition on asphalt, and crush it with a bulldozer." My favorite sentence of today.

  15. Daniel Crawford on January 25, 2023 at 1:43 am

    No!!! Not John Wayne…

  16. JESUS YESHUA EL ELYON elshadai Adon Ori haaretz on January 25, 2023 at 1:44 am

    This was done when ammo was cheap.. seeing this in 2022 hurts because theres no ammo anywhere and when there is its 3 to 4 times as 9 years ago

  17. Ret2Play on January 25, 2023 at 1:46 am

    Who else is watching this in 2021 and crying… 400 thousand rounds used in the demonstrations 😩

  18. Michael Walton on January 25, 2023 at 1:46 am

    A very good video.

  19. Gunk on January 25, 2023 at 1:46 am

    Nice testing but in today’s world it really hurts to watch all that ammo burn up. NOOOOOOO.

  20. LuvThyNaybor on January 25, 2023 at 1:47 am

    Wow this was the most insane Ammo video I have ever seen! Full of great information, thank you very much for sharing!!!

  21. Riley Senn on January 25, 2023 at 1:47 am

    This was both awesome and heartbreaking. I thought the bulldozer was rough then he said 28k rounds in a bonfire 😪

    Edit : over 400k rounds used that hurts my soul in 2021

  22. Jim Emerson on January 25, 2023 at 1:48 am

    Like to see some fire testing done on full military ammo cans. And in particular 100 rounds of 50 BMG in a military can. And what about tracer and or incendiary rounds? Great video.

  23. fchanMSI on January 25, 2023 at 1:49 am

    Look back from 2020/2021 that awful waste of ammunition but that good lesson to learn before the ammunition shortages in 2020/2021.

  24. pyrohawk69 on January 25, 2023 at 1:49 am

    It HURT to watch all that ammo be ruined and/or destroyed!!!🥺😫

  25. Xeno Morph on January 25, 2023 at 1:49 am

    Yeah I totally see myself destroying my ammunition in my house using a bulldozer…..

  26. David Boekhout on January 25, 2023 at 1:51 am

    If that makes you sad, imagine all the goodies left to waste in the middle east!

  27. Peter Morgan on January 25, 2023 at 1:51 am

    Adjusting for 2021 inflation and ammo shortages, the approximate cost of the ammo destroyed in this video is $8.27 million dollars. 😉

  28. TheZuch on January 25, 2023 at 1:52 am

    Great video, but I will feel the ammo destruction deep in my soul for years to come.

  29. Good Ol Boy #76 on January 25, 2023 at 1:55 am

    I know this is a test but it just about made me cry watching all that ammo getting destroyed.

  30. G B on January 25, 2023 at 1:56 am

    Fast-forward to 2021, and I’m almost crying right now. 😛

  31. Bob on January 25, 2023 at 1:58 am

    But what if there was a loaded gun among the ammunition? That round wold go off a full velocity. And with all that smoke you have no way of knowing if there are a few loaded guns laying around in that fire room. I would not want to be the first guy in.

  32. Willow Tree on January 25, 2023 at 2:00 am

    How much was all that ammo worth 9 years ago? $1,500? That’s pure gold now man…

  33. John Nelson on January 25, 2023 at 2:00 am

    It would be completely cost prohibitive to do this nowadays lol

  34. S. Michael DeHart on January 25, 2023 at 2:00 am

    I’ve been here 100’s ofttimes over 27yrs as a firefighter/fire service instructor AND a certified firearms instructor.

  35. watchguy79 on January 25, 2023 at 2:00 am

    This is hard as ever to watch today.

  36. Seth Gabel on January 25, 2023 at 2:01 am

    This is great information. It’s something I’ve always wondered about.

  37. Devil's Offspring on January 25, 2023 at 2:01 am

    I don’t live in the USA or own guns, but from what I’ve heard about the ammo supply in 2021, you just set someone’s retirement fund on fire 🙂

  38. Maps Of Being on January 25, 2023 at 2:08 am

    painful to see, but someone had to do it. Hopefully no one ever does it again.
    *instert ammo price joke here*

  39. Michael Wolford on January 25, 2023 at 2:08 am

    Very interesting.

  40. fchanMSI on January 25, 2023 at 2:12 am

    The most dangerous is loaded semi-auto firearm with fully loaded magazine as if the 1st round fires the velocity will be at normal speed of cartridge in that firearm and it continue to cycle until all rounds have fired off. The rounds in magazine may go off earlier thus destroying the magazine so that could affect this.

  41. Vincent Divita on January 25, 2023 at 2:13 am

    So glad the shortage is over. I would be crying. I think I know some people that would love to see this rn.

  42. Herb Bates on January 25, 2023 at 2:14 am

    I grew up in an Air Force family so seeing them burnt in a 50-gallon barrel, they would just pop and not that loud, firecracker made more noise

  43. Luis Rodriguez on January 25, 2023 at 2:16 am

    🇺🇸🇵🇪🇵🇷😎 Thanks for sharing!!

  44. Zero Gravity on January 25, 2023 at 2:17 am

    Would’ve loved to see a scenario in which 5-10k rounds of ammo stacked in a typical gun safe engulfed in fire for 30 minutes or so to myth bust/substantiate safe exploding.

  45. Reality Survival on January 25, 2023 at 2:17 am

    Am I the only one weeping over all this destroyed ammo? 😂

  46. Flurgy22 on January 25, 2023 at 2:18 am

    I feel like some of these tests were just for fun.

  47. TH3L33TM3XICAN on January 25, 2023 at 2:19 am

    All the primers 😭😭😭

  48. Locke Haney on January 25, 2023 at 2:20 am

    Great video. Only suggestion is use less fire related terms, ie fully involved. As an adult educator all of my career, keep the language at a 6th grade level to ensure all readers can grasp the words meaning

  49. Jim Hankins on January 25, 2023 at 2:21 am

    Maybe this is why there’s a Ammo shortage. 😂

  50. JB on January 25, 2023 at 2:22 am

    The anxiety of people watching this in 2021.
