    you can throw ammo in the fire and you will get a very unimpressive pop because there isnt a barrel to prevent the casing from expanding. If you have a loaded revolver or one in the chamber of a sa and the car caught on fire, you may have something.
    Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......

    The heat in a car ect won't "cook off" ammo, if it could the interior of cars would be catching on fire. IT WILL effect performance.... WAAAY back in the 80s I shot several Bianchi Cups, one year a leading contender (can't remember his name, retired FBI) from Florida was disqualified because his ammo did not meet the power factor. He was loading his own and was just above the limit at his home range in Florida, all anyone could figure was difference in temp in Missouri in May.

    Be careful in any shooting tests, the heat could well increase pressure in the chamber just as easily it apparently decreased power in this case.
