We used to rap M-16 magazines against a steel helmet.

IF the cartridge was not contained in a barrel, the bullet will travel only a few feet- the cartridge CASE would travel further, since it is lighter than the bullet.
we did 14's that's how it got started and I have Never heard of a ND in the mag.

So you see a bullet hole in the wall, or a pristine shell casing then you can safely call BS.
So, It happens.
Quite frankly is the truth that the exceptions prove the rule. The primer will not ignite unless hit by a firing pin or striker, or hammer , or...someone tapping a full mag.

When I was a kid, my friends and i would steal .22 cal rounds from our parents and burn them in creative ways, you know, with sparklers, etc. and the whole casing would explode in fragments.
Once i got a bruise the size of a tangerine on my leg with a fragment the size of a rice grain.

Advise to parents: KEEP ALL AMMO LOCKED AWAY FROM KIDS IN A SUPER SECRET DUNGEON.
