    Washed Magazine and rounds

    I washed a magazine and eight rounds od Winchester white box 9mm rounds today. I guess I shouldn't use the ammo now. I took the mag apart and hit it w/a good dose of eezox so I'm sure it's ok. What's the best way to get rid of the water logged ammo?

    I don't believe there's any problem with still firing the ammo, the worst it will do is not fire, I just wouldn't use SD ammo that had gone through the washer, as it might not be 100% reliable. You're not the first person to do that though, just a couple months ago I ran a speedloader full of .357 Hydrashok's through the wash....
    .40 is fine.

    Shoot it at the range, if it misfires let it sit in the chamber for a bit before ejecting. Factory ammo is pretty tough.

    Your shooting buddies will comment on that lemon fresh smell coming from your gun.

    I would not sweat this.

    The mag I'd disassemble, check for blockages, and lightly lube.
    The ammo will be fine and reliable.
    But to feel better I'd swap it out for new of same and fire off the old at the range. Dollars to donuts they will all go bang.

    Did they go through the dryer also? If you decide to go ahead and shoot the ammo, might do it sooner than later. It would probably be okay.

    If you get an audible pop and reduced recoil, be sure to not try to fire again. Bring a sturdy dowel big enough to fit down your bore just in case...

    Clean and oil the mags. Burn the ammo at the range, but I'll bet it all goes BANG!

    I personally would just toss it. Give it to the range officer; he/she can properly dispose of it for you.
