How Do You Get Rid Of Bad Ammunition?

Bullets that don't fire and corroded ammunition are a risk, so don't start stockpiling bad ammo and get rid of it! The internet has a lot of recommendation on what to do with bad ammunition, so we want to share with you five methods on how to do it.

One way is to contact the local police. They will send an officer to pick up the corroded ammo. If you have ammunition that just won't fire, you can opt to recycle it. Home reloaders do it, and you can do it too, all you need is a kinetic puller to disassemble the round.

Another way of getting rid of bad ammo is to take the ammunition to a disposal center. Call first and see if they´re accepting ammunition, as they probably have a hazardous waste drop-off. You can also bring your bad ammo to the range, they have a container for dud rounds and are connected with local law enforcement or recycling companies.

Finally, you can call a local gun store to see if they accept your bad ammo or, if it's recyclable, they will help you get in contact with reloaders who want to take it.
