Ammo Shipping
« on: May 27, 2020, 05:29:52 am »
Relocating to AZ. Arriving in the next month. I have ammo to transport. I am thinking about the temperatures this time of year in AZ and creating a hazardous condition.

My first thought was to transport in my truck. It will be heavy. I am going transport my powder and primers.

The second thought is to ship (Upack freight) with our personal belongings and store ammo in climate control storage or keep with me in our temporary lodging. Max time from pickup, transport and storage is 5-7 days.

What do you think? Advice/recommendations would be appreciated.

    Zillions of rounds stored in containers, garages, out door sheds all over arizona for decades, probably centuries, with no issues

    ^^^ this.  :thumbup

    If I could carry a full pack out in 130deg heat for days on end in the ME, yours will be fine in AZ.

    My guess is that somewhere here in the Arizona desert are 140+ year old buried firearms, still loaded.  And if those old firearms had been protected from the elements, I would not be surprised if the ammo loaded in them was still capable of going bang.

    In order for rounds to cook off I'm thinking that the temperature is gonna have to get a whole lot hotter than it typically gets here in the desert.

    If I remember right , gunpowder ignites around 800 degrees or so.
    I doubt keeping it in a car will make it go off.
