This topic may have been touched on before , if so I missed it . We all have them from time to time but in your honest opinions what is the best and safest way to dispose of malfunctioned rounds ? I would think a .22 rimfire would be the worst , and I dont especially like pulling bullets or dont have the tools to dis-assemble a live round . Im also sure just throwing them on the ground for the lawn mower to have fun with is not the safest route either , nothing bothers me more than a large or a hot round not firing like it should . A buddy of mine swears they wont go off or they will just pop and make a small fire if they are not chambered but I have to strongly disagree with him on that one . Most of my ftf's are .22 rf and after dropping the hammer a few more times I eject them into a pot of water and there they sit . The probabilty of it going off 30sec after ejection is low but nonetheless it still contains live powder in a enclosed cartridge .
