Washed Ammo Question
 
I washed my work pants today with a Bianchi Speed Strip still in the watchpocket. The speed strip held 5 rounds of Speer Gold Dot 135 gr +p. I think they will fire without a problem. What do you think?

Well at least they didn't make it into the dryer :p . Will they fire........I doubt it, but give it a try and let us know.

I would advise against trying it. If you do, fire one round at a time, have tools on hand to remove a stuck bullet, and inspect the bore after each round. Water will do bad things at both ends of the cartidge, either the primer or the powder. Chances are the cartridges were not sealed at both ends, and you'll get a dead round, maybe a squib, or maybe worse. I wouldn't risk it but...

I personnaly wouldnt risk it, it is only 5 rounds so no big loss.
