    It reminds me when a couple of guys I know lit off a huge roll of 100,000 Black Cat firecrackers without unrolling it first.
    It looked and sounded just like that video.

    Hard to believe that they couldn't have had all that stuff recycled in a less destructive method. Maybe that thing has some sorting mechanism for lead and brass.

    2,000 opinions being expressed.... all just a bunch of noise and nothing worthwhile being accomplished in the end. o_O

    Just a simple search on YT found another copy of the same video, except it had an actual description of what was going on. The English is a bit broken, but you get the point:

    "In a special area of the military site of the city of Zelenokumsk in Russia, more than 2,000 firearm cartridges are burned. This is old ammunition which is no longer usable and which have been found in the lands. They date from the Second World War after the Russian soldiers. These balls no longer useless and have corrosion problems. Therefore, they could cause damage to people trying to use them."

    Old, unusable, WWII era ammo, unsafe to use, so being discarded in a pretty cool way. As for reclaiming lead, brass, steel, etc., I have a feeling these guys probably don't worry much about stuff like that.

    For a country that has a RAD count on their milk cartons (post Chernobyl), lead is just so much chewing gum for them over there. o_O:D

    Don't they ingest the lead to shield themselves from the radiation? o_O

    I heard that Vladimir Putin is such a bad-arse, that every Wednesday evening he soaks in a hot-tub full of molten lead. :D

    Last time he asked Obama to join him, Obama said it wasn't hot enough.

    That's the official version, but inside sources say it's because Putin doesn't allow anyone to wear bicycle helmets in the hot tub, regardless of how slippery the rails are.
