in a ziploc bag..could it kaboom?
I seriously doubt it. Even if one bullet manage to go off, it wouldn't be much of a "kaboom". It would be more of a "pop". Not much to see really.

OK, you have my curiosity...just exactly are you planning to do?

I doubt it. Half my club carries ammo in ziplocks and we are far from gentle about how we treat it.
You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.

There are always too many Democratic, Republican and never enough U.S. congressmen.
One, my father when he was at the academy. They were doing live fire and one of the other trainees dropped a cartridge on the concrete and it went kaboom. Oddly, they never recovered the bullet, and the casing was shattered in pieces.
The other was an employee I am acquainted with at a sporting goods store witnessed a customer and son buying some .22 LR. The son dropped a box and one of the rounds detonated. The employee said he wouldn't have believed it had he not seen it himself.
Stranger things have happened I guess, but I have never been overly concerned about it being an issue.
I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.
When I worked for a certain big gun retailer we carried HSM reloaded ammo. We had a customer drop a box of them from about 8 feet up off a shelf. When it landed a round from the box went off. The bullet was sitting in the botton of the box. We found the brass about 50 yards away. It made an extremely loud sound. So could it happen, its a possibility.

It'll make a game of hot potatoes interesting.. we can glue a small piece of bb to the primer of each bullet. tape it all together so the bullets are all pointing inward and play hot potato on concrete?
Certainly if the casing lip were just in contact and sandwiched between the hard surface and the primer or the bullet tip against primer. But it would have to be a hard surface such as concrete or rock or tile to occur. The resiliency of a soft surface would likely not produce a sufficient strike.
