This Is What Happens When You Heat A Bullet With A Blow Torch
When we think about a bullet being exposed to flames; numerous possibilities come to our minds. Would it blast off just like shooting a gun, or would it explode right on the spot? You may not know the answers to these questions, but we all can agree on one thing, that the end of this incident will be destruction.
The fact is that even a big .50 BMG round filled with gunpowder would cause a few dents to the casing if put under similar conditions. The modern gunpowder is not an explosive, but rather a propellant. It burns quickly when in confined spaces under lots of pressure. But when left in the open, it doesn’t even burn fast and fizzles out while producing a lot of smoke.
