SAAMI Safety Testing on Ammunition
« on: December 06, 2012, 03:35:23 PM »
Have you seen this video created by the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufactures Institute (SAAMI)?  It is very interesting and addresses many myth's that ammunition is extremely hazardous when outside of the firearm.  It was created mainly to support concerns for fire fighters that believe you should "let the house burn" to protect the safety of firefighters.  It also addresses ammunition concerns such as velocity testing and propagation.  Independent tests performed in the video include. . .

Primer Fired w/o Firearm
Drop Test
Impact Test on Cartridges
Ignition Using Blasting Caps
High Speed Blunt Force Impact
Crush Test
Miscellaneous Fire Tests
