Solutions to Spiking Ammunition
Spiking ammunition refers to replacing a bullet's propellant with a high explosive, causing it to detonate upon firing. Additionally, mortar rounds and grenades can also be altered to detonate instantaneously. This can cause serious injury and even death. It's impossible to tell if a bullet has been altered, and often surplus ammunition is what is altered. This means that anyone who uses surplus ammunition (for recreation or otherwise) has the potential to be injured/killed by these weapons. Historically, the practice was used as a means of counterinsurgency in Vietnam, and was used again in Iraq and Afghanistan. However, because it is impossible to control the spread of the spiked ammunition, it puts civilians at risk. It's too difficult to control the spread of surplus munitions, as well as determine who is a member of a counterinsurgency movement.
