Here is a photo of a mud hut demolition we done in Iraq just on the outskirts of a town called Diwaniyah. The mud hut had about 32 tons of ordnance in it. thumbsup

We were 1 km away and had items passing over our head. We were limited to the size of our shots because we were right on the edge of town. We loaded up one of the big bunkers with about 200 odd ton but the authorities wouldn't let us fire that one. sad

Cheers

Doug

Just keep it safe. As 7.62 has said in some of his posts . With UXO leave it alone and contact the authorities. Please people do not trespass on military firing ranges . Not only are you trepassing you might just get yourself a free ride to the pearly gates to see good old St Peter. It is plain stupid. Stupid.

Smell that? You smell that? Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn’t find one of ‘em, not one stinkin’ d%@# body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like… Victory. Someday this war’s gonna end…”

While I can understand some areas around Darwin will have uxo, what are the likelihood of finding something in Victoria? I have always assumed mostly you'd find shotgun pellets and casings and a spent bullets and casings for rim-fire or center-fire, but rarely an intact bullets.

Hey Boxtwin2,

Expect to find parts of or complete smalls arms ammunition and even uxo at any past or present military training areas anywhere in Australia. Even areas that were not gazetted as training areas.

Cheers

Doug
