Was just at my local walmart checking for some ammo. Was talking to the associate and they mentioned 22 ammo was being laced with a deactivator compound that would make stock piling for the long term impossible. Googled it but not finding alot of info on it. Wondering how much truth to this there is. Has anyone heard of this?

I work for Walmart and have heard no such thing. I stay on top of the ammo news at our store.

Sounds like that guy is full of something.

Two words, Bull Shit! Lead free can become unreliable after many many years. But I have Federal Ballisticlean that is 15 years old that still works fine.

I think the Walmart ammo counter clerks have a weekly conference where they see who made up the best ammo rumor to spread to customers.

Awesome. Glad to know my stock pile is safe. I was hoping it was bull shit. Thx guys

I think the water at Walmart is laced with stupid.

What's with Walmart keeping ammo locked under the register? I have 5 walmarts around that I went to when I was out and about and when I asked for 9mm and then said " oh, looks like I'm to late", the employee went over to the counter under the register and unlocked it and had only 1 box of federal so I picked it up.

Tinfoil hat on a bit too tight?

The compound was perfected for use in primers about 20 years ago, I remember it well
Link Posted: 1/12/2013 6:04:52 PM EDT
Lol.... I don't know what's more absurd; that someone said this, or that you actually gave it a moment of thought.

If a WalMart cashier said it, take it to the bank.

They're required to have Chemistry degrees to work at the gun counter, you know.

It is a compound that reacts to a special EMP, Obama has a button to activate it nation wide.

Sorta like this kind of thing!


BTW that was my own Photoshop creation so don't anyone get nervous!

Hey! I get to work the gun counter at times when they need back up or coverage for a break. Other than that I am in the back mixing chemicals for the fun of it.

Did you believe this? If not why would you post this?

I heard the same at Slander Mountain only it was all ammo. He said it was similar to what is used in mines to prevent injuries years after war's end.
Link Posted: 1/13/2013 7:18:14 AM EDT
sounds like someone confusing corrosive vs non corrosive smokeless cartridges. corrosive lasts for damn near ever whereas from what i understand non corrosive may deteriorate some over time, if i remember correctly....

I just got of the phone with my son in law, who just happens to work at a big if not the biggest gunpowder plant, so he would know. He said this is not true in fact they add a chemical to extent the powder shelf life and to make it safer to manufacture. He would not say what they add or when in the manufacture process it is added. Here is another rumor from a source of mine in the know that Walmart will stop selling ammo period. When he did not know but it was somethng cooked up between Walmart and Obama. I would put not it pass Obama to threatening them with "sicking the unions on them" if they did not bow down to his wishes.

Lead free centerfire rounds do have a shelf life before they start to go bad. I would guess lead free .22lr would have the same issue except I have never even heard of something like that.

You were Trolled OP. You did the right thing though, never trust what you hear at Wally World.
Link Posted: 1/21/2013 6:03:46 AM EDT
I have 22 ammo from the early 70's I still shoot. Have even came across some from the 60's that I shot a few years back.
Link Posted: 1/21/2013 8:14:08 AM EDT
I think he snorted or smoked some of that special "deactivator compound"
Link Posted: 1/21/2013 8:25:01 AM EDT
I hear this rumor every now and again among gun people, sometimes about ammo, sometimes about primers/powder.

All bullshit, AFAIK
