In Response To: WD40 and ammo - They don't mix! (Bill in NC)
I learned about that back in the early 80's. A guy was bitching at a LGS that his Alaska hunt was ruined because of dud ammo. Turns out he hosed down his gun and all his ammo with copious amounts of WD40 so nothing would rust or corrode on the trip. WD40 capillaries past the primer and kills the priming compound. He was not happy when the manager explained to him the problem. I stood nearby listening and making mental notes to never use WD40 around a firearm or ammo.
