Feds are collecting "unwanted ammo" from people and YOU are paying up for 5 dollars a pound to drop it off! What a deal!

This actually makes me mad. This 100% takes advantage of people who probably inherited ammo from someone else or otherwise doesn't know what they have, let alone the ammo situation nationwide. Why can't I pull up and take it? There's so many good places that ammo could be going other than the "incinerator".
I think it is actually not a bad idea.

I hate to see it burned, but what would you suggest doing with it if you are not an experienced shooter and ammo reloader. This does not preclude any individual from stepping up and saying: "I will take it". Then what? I would not shoot it if I did not know the origin or what its storage conditions have been. If a reloader you could pull and reclaim the brass - and guess if it has been reloaded and how often. So start posting or advertising: "Get rid of ammo that is old or unknown - I'll take it, no charge."

I don't believe they are paying out for it, but rather you are paying them to take it off your hands a disposal fee..
"Disposing of the first five pounds of ammunition is free and $5 per pound after that."
