What the hell every time I shoot more than 60 rds of wolf in my ak I get a nose infection the next day. The infection usually lasts about 2 days. This has just started to happen recently. Could it in fact be the muzzleloaders at the range now (It is like fucking Gettysburg with the smoke)?

I was at the range a few weeks ago, and my eyes started burning while I was there. It's a private range that is owned by the company I work for. Our local PD uses it for practice. After a little while I noticed a big whitish patch that looked like a burn mark or fine power. Then I realized they must have been practicing with pepper-gas canisters or something. [:)]

You must be allergic to the dog hair in the primers.

That crap reeks of ammonia when fired. Maybe you are allergic to the fumes?

You know, I was firing some Russian Barnul ammo last weekend and noticed that it reeeeeked of ammonia. What's up with that? I had to blow my nose a million times an hour for three days after.

It's probably there to counteract their corrosive primers.

Winchest Q3131A smells like amonia as well when fired. God Bless Texas

It must be the amonia or at least some irritant that gets in my nose from the powder. In the shower I just snorted some water and that helped a lot.

You can't get an infection from just chemicals. You need some sort of bacteria or virus to get an infection. Irritation, sure. FWIW, at our club's open house last Sunday, I let people fire my AR from a bench while I was giving minimal instruction from the right side of the rifle. We fired maybe 250 - 280 rounds of Barnaul 55 grain .223. I lost count. I sucked a lot of Barnaul fumes that day & I'm doing it again later today. Yes, it smells like ammonia. No adverse effects. No, their primers are not corrosive.

You wouldn't have a Y comp on your barrel do you? I have a mini Y on my m4gery and I get a blast of love smoke every round I shoot. It is amazing I haven't got one yet. It can't be good for you, but it smells soooooo good.

Yeah, I've noticed that same thing except if I do a lot of shooting or use a lot of solvent cleaning my guns my right nostril starts to bleed. Damn if I know.
